WASHINGTON, Jan 16, (AFP) - A nudist club near Washington is offering to bail out people stuck for accommodation during next week's inauguration of president-elect Barack Obama, but you have to be a bit of a bare-devil to take up the offer.
You have to get naked.
Certainly, that's only to be expected at a nudist club, and, this being the dead of winter, you don't have to stay naked all the time.
And, furthermore, staff at the Pinetree Club near Annapolis, Maryland, will break you in gently to the idea of being in the buff. “People who aren't members of the International Naturist Federation or the American Association for Nude Recreation have to go on a 30-minute tour of the facilities,” Patrick Sokoloski, the manager of the Pinetree Club, set in a 90-acre wooded park 35 miles (56 kilometres) east of Washington, told AFP.
