On Capitol Hill, the House offices and the Senate offices are on separate sides of the Capitol building. The distance between the two is about 1/2 a mile.
That’s not much, but when you’ve got a full day of meetings, tired feet, and not much time to spare, it’s nice to get a lift.
Taxis are out of the question, and most people don’t have bikes.
Today the pedicabs were out in force, whisking advocates between the two buildings with style, energy and smiles.
I grabbed a lift with 25 year-old Sam Gibson (check out this on-board view). He answered a job listing on Craigslist and is having fun with the assignment.
I would have learned more about him, but I was late for a meeting and taxis were blaring horns at us. Thanks for the lift Sam!
