POOLS IN DC—WHERE TO SWIM DAY PASSES

I grew up thinking I was Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Personally, when I travel, I want to know where I can swim, when is it open, how many meters it is, can I do normal human being laps or is it a pool for babies, how much does it cost, and most importantly, —-Can I sneak in for free. The answers to all these questions are below (except the last one—for that for me to know… and you to find out—another day in another blog)   The Hilton... Read More

PEDICAB SONG BY SHAADY-THE SLY SWIFT FLYING SQUIRREL THAT I AM

As a pedicabber and a lover of Washington DC, I must admit that I am obsessed with pedicabbing. This is the reason why I started this company. Since I love pedicabbing so much, I free-styled this song about pedicabbing and recorded it on my i-phone…. listen to it… It is… one part ridiculous, three parts passionate, two part facts, and one part fib. Most pedicabbers would appreciate this song… let me know what you think… pedicab... Read More

OUR PEDICAB PERFORMANCE REVIEWS- LIVING LIKE ROCK STARS–and Fred ARMISEN making fun of us… I LOVE it

this is my FAVorite!!!!! the conventional working world where federal government lemming employees work 9-5 jobs— you get performance reviews and annual evaluations. In the pedicab world, we all want to ask each other the same question. It’s our way of comparing ourselves, judging our productivity, a performance review of sorts.  Although this question is on the minds of many pedicabbers, many don’t ask, don’t tell—–... Read More

TOP FIVE BIKE PATHS IN DC/METROPOLITAN AREA

5. Rock Creek Trail— 20 miles I’d say—this one is especially my pic on the weekends because the DC area becomes closed off to cars, and its just you and the road baby! I like to start this one off in Maryland and end in DC. It is more of an uphill slant I’d say… and you pass the Zoo (check out the pandas) and the ZOO LIGHYS in the winter! 4. Custis Trail—4 miles—A nice trail from Shreve Road where the Long... Read More

IN LIGHT OF 9/11, WHERE HAS ALL THE PATRIOTISM GONE?

This is an article my darling little cousin Yasmin Akbari wrote. Yasi, when I read this I was so proud of you. I never knew you were such a great writer. I have a lot of opinions on a lot of the things you said however and I want to share them with you. First off, I was wondering why you said the Pledge of Allegiance for the first time in high school. Did you not say it before? Did you not want to say it? Was it your way of passive rebellion? Leave... Read More

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... Read More

STEALING FROM THE RICH AND GIVING TO THE POOR

I must say that whenever I get off the metro to go to my house, I secretly wish that a pedicab will be waiting for me right outside the metro. Pedicab rides are my favorite mode of transportation! Especially because I am a bag lady (meaning I always walk around with more than both of my arms full of bags)! If the spirits-of-wish-come-trues bless me with such an honarble presence, I’d be jumping for joy. The thing is, it almost never happens.... Read More
