Dupont Circle, Washington D.C.


Es un barrio adinerado muy peculiar del distrito de Columbia, en el que se mezcla la comunidad gay y el ambiente diplomático. Por lo que está siempre muy animado. Aunque, aparentemente en las guías encontremos que tenga un ambiente gay cuando nosotros fuimos (por recomendación de una pareja española afincada allí), nos encontramos bares y discotecas llenas de universitarios y de gente con ganas de pasárselo bien debido a que se encuentra al lado de la universidad Georgetown.

It is a wealthy very peculiar neighborhood of Columbia's district, in which there is mixed the gay community and the diplomatic environment. For what is always very animated. Though, seemingly in the guides we find that it has a gay environment when we were (for recommendation of a Spanish pair bought property there), we meet bars and discotheques full of university students and of people desire of spending it to him well due to the fact that one finds next to the Georgetown university.

Además, está llena de restaurantes, discotecas, bares, karaokes, tiendas, etc. Es muy conocido su mercadillo granjero de los domingos y su gran parque (Washington D.C. tiene zonas naturales incluso en su centro).  Fuimos un grupo de amigos y  nos lo pasamos muy bien charlando con otros estudiantes universitarios. Especialmente nos lo recomendaron porque es un barrio bastante seguro para turistas, y paralelamente, menos frecuentado por ellos, donde poder conocer más la forma de vida del lugar. Me llamó mucho la atención su entrada al metro, que os hablaré de ella en el próximo post.

Specially they recommended it to us because it is a sure enough neighborhood for tourists, and parallel, less frequented by they, where to be able to know more the form of local life. There was called me the attention very much his entry to the metro, which I will speak to you about her in the near post.
