The Tourists Have Vanished - Green Acres?

Things have definitely changed. Where they were once everywhere, now they are few and far in between. Our walk on Sunday through the National Mall highlighted the paucity of visitors to the neighborhood. A local was feeding ducks in the pool in front of the Capitol, but the gardens near the Smithsonian Castle and the US Botanical garden were deserted. My husband didn't like it since he thrives on crowds and noise. I, on the other hand, prefer it. It reminds me of Green Acres - he prefers city life and I think I might like a less hectic surrounding. But this won't last long so I'll enjoy it while it's here.
