Catching up with the Traveling Yogi

My friend has been teaching Ashtanga yoga classes for the last five years.  It's remarkable to hear that it has been that long already, since it feels like yesterday that we were taking classes together in Georgetown.  She found her passion on the mat, and has traveled to Mysore, India for the past three years to deepen her practice, as well as earn authorization from the founder's grandson to teach Ashtanga.  So proud of her!  She's also probably the smartest person I know, escaping the cold and dismal DC winters each year for hot and sunny India. 
She's finally back in the area, and I had a chance to catch up with her over dinner at Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont.  It's lovely to spend a relaxing meal talking with a good friend and I'm glad she's back in the area.
 We shared a Insalata Paradiso.
Followed by a large Bosco.  The pie was great, not soupy and soggy crust, with just the right amount of mozzarella and good vegetables.
