Hey... "Posting from Washington D.C."

in NY are central and in relatively safe neighborhoods. DC's is a bit
dicier that way,


dicier is just another way of saying that the areas is a dangerous,
drug infested dump


It's not Beverly Hills but it's far from a dangerous drug-infested dump.
Okay, well, the dump part might apply.

Thousands of people use the bus station every day and I've never heard of
anyone having trouble there. It's two blocks from Union Station which nobody
would ever claim to be dangerous, drug-infested, or dumpsome.

The worst anyone has to worry about is panhandlers.

Doesn't seem very impressive, does it? There are hundreds of thousands
living here and no particular entry requirements.

No, it's just to give some perspective. Especially in international travel
groups where it's helpful to know where someone's coming from.

If it really offends you perhaps I could re-word it?

Um, it gives context! A person (like Miguel or me) who lives in Washington
DC is most likely to know, on a day in day out way, about the issues that
a person who will be visiting.

Miguel does not post stuff trying to impress, just to give information.

You must be a newbie to this group, or not comprehend much that you read, to
not know that.

No, he's just an idiot who shows up every now and then with some totally
pointless insult and then disappears again.
