DC vs. NYC Round 3: Mo’ skeeters

October 30, 2010 at 6:31 am (new york city, washington dc)

The summer months were pretty bad for mosquitoes, with a handful of bites every week from just walking around the city.  I thought that was bad enough.  But it’s now the end of October and I got two mosquito bites this last week.  Who gets mosquito bites in October?  Apparently me when I’m living in DC.

NYC: 2

DC: 1

This one factor could even trump everything…  In future posts, DC’s score may continue to get penalized because of these little buggers.

DC vs. NYC Round 2: Getting to the Airport

October 30, 2010 at 6:26 am (new york city, travel, washington dc)

I’m back in California, where the weather is unexpectedly gloomier than the beautiful fall weather that I left in DC.  But to get here, it was so easy.  No transfers from one line to another, no transfer to an airport line, no need to leave an hour to get to the airport.  I just hopped on the metro and it takes you right to National Airport.  Dulles is another story and more complicated than NYC airports and Bay Area airports, but it was so easy to get to National.

NYC: 1

DC: 1
