It's International Cultural Appreciation Month in the nation's capital, so we get into the spirit by examining our city's global nature. We'll meet three Washingtonians who've spent most of their lives overseas and are working hard to make it in D.C. We'll find out how soccer really is the glue that binds people from the world over. And we'll follow the trek made by our trash as it moves from our rivers to the Atlantic Ocean.
