In case you haven't noticed DC is a wonderfully international city so on any given weekend, there may be a couple of streets closed off in downtown DC due to a festival where all can enjoy some of the following:
Rotating meat on a spit...soon to be a donor kebab for me to eat.
Turkish Kangal dogs. These guys are gigantic but very mild-mannered
Trashcans celebrating Turkish coffee and which I used to dispose of my sludgy coffee grinds at the bottom of my cup.
A Turkish bazaar selling beautiful lamps
And folk dances and singing with tambourines. Just before this performance, a group of Turkish dancers did a very brief dance to Gangnam Style. Now, that's what I call international!
