Retro Review: The 42 Bus (local travel, Washington DC)
REVIEWED BY: Ann Currie
MY RECOMMENDATION: YES
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: The 42 Bus
WEB ADDRESS: http://the42bus.blogspot.com/
BLOG DESCRIPTION: Weekly updates and humorous posts on retail and restaurants openings, reviews, local news, and events listings along Metro's 42 bus route in Washington DC. Neighborhoods include Mount Pleasant, Adams Morgan, Dupont, Chinatown and Penn Quarter.
MY REVIEW: This is an informative blog well written about the goings on in this neighborhood in DC. The writer does a good job capturing the essence of the area. You feel like you are walking down the street or on the bus with him as he comments about the change of the name of long time business or gives you the information about a new yoga program.
The author is thorough and goes beyond just commentary, he adds details including the location, dates, times, links - all the local information you need to participate in the goings on. You learn that the local library is being temporarily relocated, where and why. A lot of work goes into keeping this current and getting these details and adding humor to it. A great blog, the area should be appreciative that someone cares. He posts almost every day.
