    Sometimes there are black wannabe Jews dressed in semi Samurai outfits preaching about how they are not African.

    Theed only bad people down here are the assholes that comes down for pro-murder/anti-abortion rallies or the white trash overrunning the city now. They haves no class or tact!

    Chinatown's Friendship Archway was a gift from DC's sister city, Beijing, and it's one of the largest single-span Chinese gates in the world. Don't forget to snap a pic.

    Right by the very busy Metro entrance. Lots of loiterers, so don't set down your bags if you stop to take a photo. Better view from across the street.

    The Friendship Archway was given as a gift from the City of Beijing in 1986. 華盛頓特區華埠的牌坊是中國北京市在 1986 年作為禮物贈送給特區的.
