I live five minutes away from my country's capital Ottawa and was there last night in fact. I also lived there for a time.

I live there (Oslo). It is the only proper city in the country.

I have never been to Washington DC but most people I know have visited the place.

Maybe I'll drive there one day since I also want to see other cities along the way like Charleston SC and Savannah GA.

That's cool. Did you visit any of the museums there in Washington DC?

I have been to it's airport and have seen the Parliament Buildings from the air.

It's a place I want to go to. I was suppose to go last time I was in Ontario, but it didn't pan out. NEXT time I will.
I hear it's nice.

Interesting Question!

Im 38 and have been to Brasília just once, when I was about 5/6 years-old. I remember that it was permitted to go up on the congress, like the protestors did in 2013 (And those days Brasil was a dictatorship...)
I also remember visiting the Cathedral, the belvedere on the TV tower, the deep blue sky...

But very few brazilians have really been there. Probably less than 10% of the pop.

I've never been to Washington, but that should change this summer. I plan to slowly check many of the big cities of the East Coast off my list, one at a time, in the next few years.

I haven't been to places that are 25 minutes away from us (Sydney Olympic Park, for one). It's not because I'm not bothered but that I'm not interested.

And you pretty much answered your own question down there. I've always heard that Canberra is boring. So it killed my interest in visiting it.
