I hear that, if you like shots, there's plenty of places around Nats Park.

Just for a moment, I thought  it said that the Swedish Embassy was practicing the IKEA lifestyle... ;)

Hmm...free drinks, dog shows, waffles and pizza - and sculpture. Well done Greece.

We did the eu open house a few times in the past. The embassies along embassy row were very crowded. The ones a bit further away weren’t so bad.

Quote
Metro’s Chief Safety Officer reports that nearly half of Metro’s 500 rail operators have lapsed recertification, which includes classroom instruction, and supervised testing in the rail yards as well as on the mainline.

In consultation with the Board of Directors, Metro management is taking immediate corrective action to remove from service 72 train operators who became out of compliance prior to May 2021. This will result in a temporary reduction in Green and Yellow line service from every 15 minutes to every 20 minutes due to an operator shortage. In addition, extra trains to relieve crowding, support special events, or replace out-of-service trains may not be available. Service impacts are expected to continue until the end of May.
