This is the way Sundays should be. This is why I love living in Washington. Strolling around the city. Soaking up the beauty and diversity. Reconnecting with friends.
The pic above is in my favorite public space in DC - Malcolm X Park. On Sunday afternoons during the warm weather months, people gather here from 3:00–9:00 p.m. in the upper park to dance, participate in a drum circle, and provide food for the homeless. They have been doing that in this park since the 1950s.
It was a great way to end the day. I could sit there and listen to the amazing beats and people watch for hours. More from Malcolm X Park...
Before winding up at Malcolm X Park, I hung out in Dupont Circle for a few hours. The beautiful thing about Dupont on a sunny Sunday is that you can sit there and watch the world go by. People from around the world. People of every shape, size, religion, and economic situation. I think I was not the only one with this idea today - I ended up seeing just about everyone I know there. That's the other cool thing about the Circle. Even though the demographics of the neighborhood have changed and DC's homo center has moved to the east - Dupont is still the magnet that draws us in.

Atul, Adi, me, and Agus - then Dr. David, Gio, Jose, Jorge, and Rodrigo. Everyone looking pretty in the park.
Washington has so many great spots to spend a Sunday.
