Foggy Bottom Guide – GW students hail D.C. cab system

It took Nicole Wittman 19 hours to get to Washington, D.C. by plane from her home in Australia. But standing outside the gates to the South Lawn of the White House, Wittman talks not of her long journey or of the grandeur of the house of the leader of the free world. Wittman would rather […]
