DISCOVER DC’s “HISTORY”- a TRUE LOVE STORY—DISCOVERED ON MY BIRTHDAY


Tonight, when I was coming back from birthday celebrations, my birthday bird’s eye view perspective stumbled across the word “History” for Yelp. As the “Business Owner” I had to “Claim my Business” and fill out my “HISTORY” for Discover DC TOURS.

History? Well this is not some old lemonade stand company that turned into Mac Donalds in 1892…so I can’t top that. At first, I didn’t think there was much to my “history” but after giving it a little thought, I realized that I think of the pedicab and me in the sense of Holy Matrimony, a marriage, a relationship… no actually, more so a TRUE LOVE STORY:
-how we first set eyes on each other
-how we fell in love
-how I wanted to keep him to stay the night or meet the parents, and the parents to accept him…

Its truely a love story…

This is what I wrote…
Shaady Fakhrai, a free spirited uncaged birdie flew out of the coo coos nest one day after realizing that starting a ‘different’ tour company would make her happier than following a conventional lemmings life style desk job…

In August 2010, when Shaady, ran into an attractive three wheeled bike that most would call a “rick shaw”, she fell in love. Strolling around the fountains of WWII in the romantic DC summer nights had her “smittin”. As the pedicab and her got to be more serious in a short amount of time, Shaady decided it was time to take it to the next level. As she gained the courage to introduce this beautiful, green, eco-friendly master peice to her family in October of 2010, they did not approve. “Shaady Joon, you and the pedicab can have fun for now, but you must not take it seriously. After all, this is just temporary…right?” Basically, they wanted Shaady to casually see/do pedicab tours on weekends, summers, and spring breaks when Shaady has free time from teaching 6th grade in Fairfax County Public Schools.

Rosa and Kambiz Fakhrai were more so worried for Shaady’s future together with pedicabbing as a career. While they were unaccepting at first, after seeing that their dear daughter was keeping healthy & happy while passionately educating tourists, they gave in. Shaady and the pedicab have been inseperable since day one.

Soon after laying her googely eyes on her first pedicab, Shaady bought some of her own pedicabs in holy matrimony and started Discover DC Tours in December of 2010.
