Around the World International Food Festival

I spent the day in Washington, DC at the Around the World International Food Festival.

I saw several performances, including a singer from Romania and a bellydance troupe dancing to Egyptian music.

Vendors and food stands lined the adjacent street. A plethora of cuisines were represented. My lunch consisted of empanadas “riquísimas”

(In Spanish, the word “rico,” meaning “rich” is used to mean “delicious” or “succulent” Here I have attached the superlative ending to indicate “very”).

I learned about a project dedicated to serving ethnic migrant communities around the world through events, media, associations, etc.
