Direct Swap - Silin from USA

I am totally living the saying "all good things must come to an end". At the end of June, just before my kids were out of school I got myself up to date with the blogging of all my received postcards. I had upwards of 40 odd scheduled posts and a completely clean desk - yeah me! While I have definitely been receiving cards over the summer I didn't even so much as scan one of them. Well, lets just say .....I am feeling it today! I am at the end of my scheduled posts and it is the last week of summer which is usually one of the craziest weeks here trying to cram in the last of all the fun! Add to that the fact I will be going back to work after 11 years and I guess I hadn't fully thought through my new back log. I can already see the pile growing!

My family and I recently went on a long overdue vacation. I arranged this swap with Silin via the Postcrossing Forum. I was super excited as we were travelling to Washington, D.C. the next day and thought it would be a fun and welcome addition to my subway map collection. We did ride the Metro a few times during the trip so even the kids were able to spot certain stops such as our hotel, The Zoo and Pentagon on the map.  The system while very efficient was so totally different than the Toronto system in almost every way. I don't think I could get use to the up lit, concrete look of the stations...ever. Great city, great time spent with my three BFF's and as always lots we didn't see to ensure maybe there will be a next time.
