From Cathedral Heights to the Gold Coast

We finally turned east on Garfield onto Woodley running past the elegant Marriott Wardman Hotel at Woodley Park. Crossing Connecticut we headed over the tall and ornate arch bridge overlooking the deep and lush Rockcreek Park onto Adams Morgan.

The amazing thing about this run is that we actually visit eight uniquely diverse DC communities. Not only do we experience rich and historic culture and arts internationally from all over Europe, we also get a healthy dose of culture and lifestyle locally from within the Nation's Capital.

As we pushed onto ethnically-diverse Adams Morgan, a rich and vibrant arts and culture community we could see businesses selling clothing, jewelry and accessories as well as street food vendors selling corn tortillas and pupusas -- delightful and the whiff of the burning wood together with the aroma of grilling meat whetted my appetite.

Once in the heart of Adams Morgan, we turned onto Euclid and pushed on past the dense apartments and rowhouses onto prominent 16th Street, known colloquially as the Gold Coast (because sections of it is lined with 20th century Tudor mansions).
