This past Wednesday (Aug. 15) I took a day trip to the nation’s capital with my brother.
We landed around noon and immediately headed over to Shaw neighborhood (Little Ethiopia) via the metro and stopped at an Ethiopian Restaurant called Zenebech Injera.
We ordered Doro Wat which is chicken stew with a hard-boiled egg, and injera which is a spongy flat bread all eaten with the hands. The food was delicious, I specially liked the spongy bread, but it filled me quickly. The red stew reminded me of Mexican “mole”.
Here’s some of the photos I took around the neighborhood.
Around the same neighborhood, we stopped at Som Records vinyl store. If you’re ever in DC and you are a vinyl collector I really recommend you to stop here. Music selections range from rock, jazz, reggae, brasilia, country, funk, and a $1 section! Overall, a great place to dig.
Short on time, we walked around the Washington Monument area before heading back to the airport.

Stopped by for some cheesy, chicken quesadilla. Here’s the location for Los Gueros.
I like what they’ve done here outside the truck stand they have a little porch area with tv. Very nice.
Check it out, Tamanna Bhatia is the Bollywood beauty in this video, this song is from Kalloori (2007) bollywood film. I haven’t seen the film but I enjoy the song.
I ran into this song on Migrationology’s Colombo, Sri Lanka travel video, check him out, as he knocks out two of my favorite things, travel and street food.
And if you want to try out some new music from around the world, check out Xandimusic’s blog, they have accumulated a nice amount of music on there, and you can suggest some of your own.
Sunday cook off @ home for my sis b-day.
