Welcome! This is the place I write about Things I Notice in my daily walkabouts as well as what I might think about things in my world.

D.C. National Mall "Cafes"

Walking around the National Mall, one has the chance to sample foods from all around the world...however, not from romantic sidewalk cafes and bistros, but rather from the dozens of Food Trucks that line the streets! And I mean from ALL over the world, Ethiopian, Mexican, Indian, Afghan, Italian, Spanish, kabobs, organic....and, well maybe not from everywhere, but from lots of places, not your standard hot dogs and half smokes. People stand in line for quite a while for some vendors while others hang around the truck long after they've finished eating. Festive, picnic-like, fun. The kind of thing that terrorist thugs would end. Joy, peace, happy smiles, the way life is supposed to be.D.C. Street Vendors
