I study international politics/law in Washington DC and am from Ankara, Turkey. I lived in Istanbul for five years and have been in DC for three years now.
While traveling, I very much prefer staying at friends' homes and would like you to experience the same comfort here while in DC!
I speak Turkish, English, French, a bit of German and a bit of Spanish. I would be more than happy to give you recommendations about local spots in DC, which are often not readily available on tourist guidebooks.
