Well, we made it to DC. After a wonderful day in Baltimore we woke up this morning and headed to silver springs to take the metro to dc.
The national mall is packed full of people anticipating the concert today. All in all everyone is in great spirits. There are a couple of people who keep getting mad that people are walking so close to their blankets on the ground, but they back off when you remind them that this is public space and they are not mayor.
Security is tight but not oppressive. They searched all bags and made you open your coats. Their are armed plain clothes officers around but nothing that I wouldn’t consider overkill.
