Old Stone House in Georgetown [#32]

The students are back in town, surviving off happy hour specials and scavenging the street for free furniture. They come from all corners of the world to savor the excitement of Washington DC. In a few short years most will be gone, but some will stay in a slow evolution from dorm to English basement to shared rowhouse, eventually scattering to the furthest ends of the metro line.
