final remarks

So, what is left after a dozen postings on New York and Washington?

The simple answer is, a lot. There have been so many weird people, cars, buildings, people – it is impossible to capture all of them.

As I said before, it’s been an amazing experience and in case you’re looking for a memorable holiday – go for NYC and Washington!
