Made a quick run to DC’s Chinatown during a break Tuesday. The traditional gate is very impressive – it’s at least 5 stories tall. However, there was a definite dearth of Chinese people around. There were about four blocks of quasi-Chinatown, but apparently someone told these people that everyone has to have Chinese on their signs whether they are actually Chinese or not. So the Irish pubs, the CVS, and the brick oven pizza all have Chinese signage. It’s nice but it’s kind of just trying too hard.
