Only In DC..

Only in Washington DC would you have this cultural mash up: a Chinese bellydancer at a Benin fundraiser.

No, I do not know why there was a bellydancer at a Benin fundraiser, the two do not have anything in common that I know of.

Nor do I know why the bellydancer, usually associated with Mediterranean peoples, was Asian.

But when asked by a Russian friend how this mash up could happen, I knew there was only one answer:

“Welcome to DC!”
