[~~~] Every spring an event occurs that brings millions of people to Washington, DC and it’s not the start of the baseball season. It’s the annual bloom of the cherry blossoms around the city but especially around the Tidal Basin that gets everyone excited. People come in from all over the world with hopes of […]

[dragonfly blossom] I don’t know about you but I am so ready for warm weather. It doesn’t have to be oppressively hot but a daytime high of 72 would be so wonderful. Of course the summer heat does bring out the lotus blossoms at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens so I guess I wouldn’t mind that so […]

[CNYP5] After many years of saying I’ll go downtown for the Chinese Lunar New Year parade and never actually going I finally made it down there. While the turnout was impressive the parade was a little less than what I had imagined. The parade started at 2pm, I got off the Metro at 2:05pm and […]

Water birds, such as herons and osprey, can also be seen searching for fish among the plants. Turtles, frogs, dragonflies, and damselflies are also commonly sighted. Located […]

Tire Sale


Almost New Auto. New York Ave, Washington, DC [Tire Sale] I’ve spent quite a bit of time driving down New York Ave over the past 5 months, what with italian classes at Casa Italiana every Sunday morning, and various other activities in the Chinatown/Penn Quarter part of town. Every time I would drive down New York […]

Artomatic 2009


Bikes lined up outside Artomatic. Navy Yard, Near Southeast, Capitol Riverfront, whatever else you want to call it, Washington, DC. [bike tires] I am such a slacker. At least when it comes to this blog. It’s been over a month since I last wrote anything and that’s just horrible. I apologize and promise to try […]
