I may have slightly neglected to remember the drink slow part of the tagline in York so I limped slowly and painfully into Washington on a shortened and frankly not very interesting route. The final run-in to Washington down bike paths was nice though.
Washington was fantastic and the bars various and most enjoyable, the highlight being the Quill at The Jefferson where bar, company and conversation were wonderful.
I was surprised at how many of the conversations were about politics and policy. London is our centre of government but it doesn't seem to dominate in the same way, I guess because London is also our centre of pretty much everything else as well.
