I wanted to stay close to the hotel at Dupont Circle. I used Urbanspoon to find a Mexican restaurant close by.
Alero was good. Completely different from “Mexican” food in Alabama. The ones I have been to everything is kind of bland. Don’t get me wrong, I love that bland covered in cheese dip taste but it can get old. The chicken enchiladas I ordered tasted fresh and the beans weren’t mush. I ordered a small strawberry margarita.
On the walk back to the hotel I came across this beauty. Anna had told me about a painted elephant she had seen on her walk to the conference. I was super excited to get to see it for myself.
