Washington, District of Columbia, United States

I love my neighbor, the Anacostia Park, Anacostia Walking and Bike Trail and the majestic views of the Nations Capitol from my neighborhood and street.

I am originally from Houston, Texas and hosiptality is deeply rooted in my life. I moved to Washington, DC after graduation from PV A&M University. I have lived in Washington DC more than I have lived outside of it, I think DC is the place for me even though I consider myself a world traveler. My goal is to go somewhere new outside of the US at least once a year to experience other cultures and live with the people. Most likely you won’t find me in a hotel when I travel because I feel the richness of traveling to another country is being amongst the people. I am a grassroots activist and a volunteer. I received my degreee in Electrical Engineering and work as an engineer today. Because I am interested in the sciences and love people, I decided to obtain my Masters Degree in Acupuncture so that I could help others here and abroad. I am a licensed Acupuncturist and received my Masters Degree in Chinese Oriental Medicine. I love the outdoors and believe in experiencing life.....I try to ride my Motorcycle whenever the weather permits and enjoy a nice walk. I am currently interested in scuba diving and look forward to diving in beautiful waters around the world. If you are looking for a spacious, clean, comfortable place to stay when you visit Washington, DC then you should stay at The Buddha behind the “Blue Door” and experience our wonderful city!

During your stay

Guest interaction depends on the guest! If you perfer a quiet evening to yourself then by all means enjoy the pleasure of your company. But if you are looking for some interaction I can definitely socialize.
