Observations, pictures, and sketches highlight the transition of moving to the nations's Capitol after 30 years of living in the Midwest. A clash in cultures? Maybe not!

While we were waiting at a stop light on Independence Avenue right next to the Washington Monument, and a few blocks from the White House, a line of police on motorcyles passed by. We knew right away that someone of "importance" was being taken somewhere in a hurry. Close behind were about 3-4 black Cadillac Escalade SUV type vehicles, followed by a limo, and even more SUV's and police on motorcycles. Because the windows are darkened, it was impossible to tell who was actually in the limo. Obviously it is commonplace for this parade to occur. But we are not usually in the front row to watch it.
