Ming Goes to Washington

I was in Washington DC for work earlier this week and managed to take some great photos of the subway system there. Even though these photos are not of New York City, I hope you would allow me the opportunity to post the photos from my trip.

The subway system in Washington DC is spotlessly clean and absolutely gorgeous. The design of the platforms and tunnels in the waiting area look like a futuristic movie set. And like the Paris Metro, there are electronic billboards announcing the wait time for the next available trains. Unfortunately, the subway lines there cover only a limited area and shut down after midnight.

Do you have a rapid transport system or subway in your city?
