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!”

    Did she bellydance well? Did her soft taunt belly undulate like it should? Did her hips wiggle sensually? Did she get you to move with her like other bellydancers have done before? If she got high marks for being able to do all that, then it is impressive as I have found most asian women don’t normally move like that.

    Are those tattoos on her hipbones or something tucked into her waistband on either side?

    She had some things tucked into her hips, like the things waiters use to hand you a bill. I think they had scarves for later on in her show.

    I left just as she started, so I don’t know how good she was overall, but she started off good.
