Another new thing I'll (probably) get to do in my new job is take public transportation. DC has a great Metro system, and I expect I'll get to read a lot more than I do now.
This photo is of the longest escalator in the world. OK, I don't know if it's ACTUALLY the longest in the world, but it's very, very long. I got winded just walking up it (I suppose I'll get used to that too).
But what amazes me is the people who run down it. And I mean they hustle down this thing. It kinda freaked me out. I'm surprised I didn't see anyone do a face plant on the way down. And the trains come every 4 or 5 minutes, so really, what's the rush?
