Hey, just had a quick question if anyone could give me some advice...
I'm doing a summer internship in Congress, and all of the housing options that I've seen so far seem pretty shitty. I'll only be there for 8-10 weeks (most likely 8), so the interndc WISH housing or whatever that makes me pay for 3 months doesn't seem too appealing. I looked at Georgetown summer housing, but thats expensive as all heck as well and has lots of caveats.
Right now, I'm leaning toward finding a place off of craigslist, so I guess my question is: What areas are accessible to Capitol Hill? How does one travel around DC? (I live in NY, so I don't mind the subway). Are there areas to look for/avoid? Any help on this would be much much appreciated!

I'm looking for information regarding those sketchy "china town buses" that'll take you from china town dc to ny or boston. Has anyone ever taken one, how much did it cost, where'd you go, how long did it take, etc.? any information would be appreciated. Also, I'm looking for info about (cheap)public transportation from the fredericksburg area to dc. thanks.
