I live near "the projects" in Old Town. Always interesting! My gal has a Mini and I've got a '99 M Coupe.
Having recently moved back into the area from Houston TX, I have to say how much I LOVE this area...mountains to the west, ocean to the east, actual SEASONS, and a relative lack of natural disasters (other than potholes and rust).
oops! I missed!
Alexandria is cool enough, but probably not worthy of a whole new topic! ;)
I dont care...
I still enjoy reading that 'ode to Old Town (NoVa). :)
Btw, what color is your MCoupe? (estoril?)
