Spending so much time in Washington DC was amazing, especially being there for Memorial Day (which I’ll talk about a bit later)! The city was glimmering with patriotism and you couldn’t help but smile and wave at everyone walking by. Mark and I had some fun moments visiting Bhakti fans at Whole Foods Market, Core Power Yoga Studio, Extend Yoga, participating in DC’s Bike To Work Day and being featured on Good Morning Washington’s Food Truck Friday series!
A stand out day for me was definitely the Harley Davidson gathering for Memorial Day. I’ve never seen so many motorcycles before, and I sure stood out like a sore thumb! It was great though, because so many people were interested in meeting me and trying Bhakti’s delicious chai. I have to say, I felt pretty special because most of the streets were blocked off except for the bikers, but they let me through the barricades and I got to pose as an official biker chick! I’ve never felt so cool before.
I also loved the Memorial Day block party in Takoma, everyone on Memorial Day was feeling extra patriotic, and the energy was infectious! To top it off, I was featured on TV (again)! After having some practice in Miami, I felt much more comfortable on camera this time. ABC’s Good Morning Washington does a Friday Food Truck series and they were anxious to meet me and find out more about what a Tuk Tuk is. I was really excited to meet them, and even though I’m not technically a food truck, it was fun to be featured and spread the Bhakti love to everyone in Washington D.C! You can check out the video feature below…
Overall, I loved spending so much time in this city, and when Mark and I left I felt a deeper sense of commitment to my Bhakti (devotion) by truly knowing this tour is not only spreading our delicious chai, but how much we are committed to making a positive difference in this world by sharing our social mission too.
Stay tuned to hear about Red Sox Nation when we visit Boston this week!
