Our Lovely Metro System

Splatter
Ok, so grossed out the last few days on the Washington, D.C. Metro system.

 

This (see above) is what I was sitting next to this morning on the train.

 

And last night was even worse, I was about to sit on one of the seats, and this nice man stopped me.

 

Someone had actually spit on the seat–and just left it there for another unknowing person to sit in.

 

Thankfully, I was saved this indignity, and ended up sitting somewhere else.

 

But later on the train, I saw someone jump up and start cursing–apparently, he had sat right in it.

 

I saw another guy offer him a handkerchief, which was quite a nice gesture, considering.

 

At the same time, I saw a lady on the train wearing one of those surgical masks that cover your mouth and nose–maybe not the worst idea under these ill conditions. 😉

Song and Dance in Ft. Lauderdale

Ft. Lauderdale is not quiet and conservative this time of year.

Between Passover, Easter, Spring Break, and the end of the snowbird season–the beach, restaurants, stores, and streets were quite lively.

This one restaurant had some nice entertainment with this guy playing guitar and this lady belly dancing and handling a sword and handkerchief–yeah, don’t ask.

At the end of the 2nd video, this weird guy in a large orange cowboy hat sort of just shows up–unfortunately, the cameraman (me) was having some technical difficulty focusing the smartphone. 😉
