I'm a tree-hugger at heart. My wife is an artist. We own a business together. We're an eco-conscious couple who like to live life to its fullest, embrace the good things and good people that are all around, travel a bit, try different ethnic foods from all over the world, explore music from all genres, cook, and entertain in our new house!
Last year, after living in DC for over 3 years, my wife and I bought this 100-year-old house within 2.5 miles of the White House, and we intend to live here for a long time, so we've really gone all out to make this home special. We spent many hours and much love to spruce it up and make it our home. Now we want to share it with others who share our love of travel and big-city life.
My wife is from New Delhi, India, so we go there as often as we are able (not often enough, though). We met in Bloomington, Indiana while she was in graduate school and I was running for County Commissioner of Monroe County. Now we're living it up in the capital city, which is a real gem of a city. We've been here for over 4 years now, and would love to share with you our favorite places, restaurants and things to do off the beaten path.
We do have a cat, so if that's a problem, there's nothing we can do about that. She's a short-haired black tabby cat, 12 years old, and very independent. Her name is Zapatista (or Zappa for short, since her caretaker is a huge fan of the Zapatistas of Chiapas, Mexico, as well as a fan of Frank Zappa), and she likes people to be around her, but she's not real crazy about too much affection (a little goes a long way with her).
Our house is in a great neighborhood called Columbia Heights. It's about a 12-minute walk to the nearest Metro subway station (also called Columbia Heights), and there are bus stops and a Capital Bikeshare station right around the corner from our house, so it's easy to get around! Taxi cabs are also easy to hail if you'd rather go that way.
Everything this great city has to offer is within easy reach from where we live!
