Last year for my 20th birthday me and my friends decided to take a 24 hour trip out to Chicago using Mega Bus to get out there. We had no plans besides to eat good food, go to Chicago, and have a severe lack of sleep for 24 hours. This is one of those trips I will remember for the rest of my life and brought me closer to two friends who I love very dearly.
My 21st birthday is in 20 days and I hope to do somethings this cool again very soon. 

Venus Transit by Alex Conu

"Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena.

They occur in a pattern that generally repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years.

Being such a rare event, on each occasion observing campaigns are organized across the world. In 2012, after studying the weather forecast for many days in a row, I decided to photograph the transit from the shore of the Black Sea, near Eforie Sud.

Choosing this place was a very good decision. The weather was great and I had the opportunity to get this image of the event.”


A series of picture maps of the Washington Metropolitan Region, created for the official bicentennial celebration of the American Revolution (1776-1976). Dated 1975. 

Please view a full, high-resolution version of the map.

Image 2: This section of the document gives an overview of the District, as well as listing information about different Metrobus stops and the in-progress Metrorail (which opened in March 1976, just before the bicentennial). 

Image 3: The section gives an up-close look at different sections of the city and inner-ring suburbs, including: Georgetown, Dupont Circle, Southwest, Capitol Hill, and Old Town Alexandria. These special sections point out landmarks such as Howard University, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and Rock Creek Park. It also provides information on famous buildings such as the Willard Hotel, the Old Post Office, and the British Embassy.
