So I may be moving to DC for my work. Likely going to end up renting, since I don't really want to buy for just a couple of years.
I don't really have any specific questions, just looking to get a general feel of the area and what I can expect from the local population. Topics include:
- living expenses (food, gas, furniture, etc)
- local travel/sight seeing
- legalities (how strict are the local police? are there odd laws that I should be aware of?)
- general experiences that might be noteworthy to a foreigner
Also, I'm a firearms enthusiast and I would like to continue pursuing that. I only own a Remington 597 and will most likely sell it before moving, so I'm not concerned about importing anything. Just local laws and whether purchase/use of firearms is restricted to citizens or just residents.
Keep in mind, that the only thing I know about DC is that it stands for District of Columbia (isn't that in South America?). Other than that. Nothing.
