Doesn’t matter .

This new decade and new year, let the quotes inspire you.


We’ve reached the end of a month, a year and a decade.

It’s going to be 2020.

Are you ready for it?

The Sports Diva would be lying if I said that I was , cause I’m not .

Have you travelled anywhere yet ?

I know you received some new travel swag for

the holidays , so use it and take yourself out of your city, state or even your country .

What are you waiting for, fam?

As usual , let these quotes be your guides


It was my last day in Washington DC after having a great time visiting my family for Thanksgiving weekend .

My Flixbus back to New York City was leaving at 1:30pm and due to arrive at 5:45pm.

Because of the Winter Storm Advisory issued for New York City , I was going to try to get on an earlier bus, say like the 12:30pm one.

No such luck.

It was full and unlike my bus, it was stopping in Baltimore.

My bus was going non stop back to the city.

We ended up getting in at 6pm which wasn’t bad seeing that the weather was awful .

As it was raining cats and dogs while waiting for the bus, one of the valet parking people suggested that I do what other people were doing , waiting in the lobby of the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, which is where the bus picks you up, 904 9th Street NW.

I had never stayed in this hotel, either in Washington DC or anywhere else.

But I knew that it was one of those fancy, smantzy hotels.

They’re so fancy that if you want to use the bathroom in the lobby, you have to go up to the Front Desk and get a room key , which you have to give back, of course .

As I couldn’t get on the earlier bus, I had some time to kill.

So I did what a few people who were either waiting for the bus or hotel guests did .

I went into Starbucks and got a Cheese Danish and one of my favorite coffees whenever I go to Starbucks , a small Vanilla Latte.

I went back to the entrance with the revolving door and listened to the music that was coming out of the loud speaker.

It wasn’t Christmas music , thank God , but something you wouldn’t expect from such a fancy place.

Try Alternative Rock.

By this time it was 1:15pm and I was ready to leave rainy Washington DC and take my bus to snow, sleet, and just gosh awful weather in New York City .


Since I was in town for the Thanksgiving holiday with my family , I did a little bit of sightseeing in the Dupont Circle area of town.

The last time I was there, in October, I saw some of the embassies on Embassy Row .

This time, even though it was raining, I decided to go see some of the embassies in the Dupont Circle area .

It was raining so hard that I was about to turn back and just take the Metro back to my neice’s house in the Petworth section if tiwn.

But then I saw what I was looking for , New Hampshire Avenue, a place that I couldn’t find on my embassy tour the last time.

Because of the rain, some of the pictures aren’t that clear and some of the flags are wrapped around the flag pole.

Also, there aren’t as many embassies on this part, so God willing , the next time I come to town, hopefully the weather will be better and there’ll be more embassies to see .

The Embassy of Equitorial Guinea

The Embassy of Namibia

Embassy of Jamaica

Sorry the flag is wrapped around the flag pole but its the Embassy of Montenegro

Embassy of Zimbabwe

Embassy of Angola
