Yesterday was the annual Around the World Embassy Tour of the month long Passport DC celebrations.

I’ve now been in DC for three of these annual events, but have yet to make it to any of the festivities.  If any readers did, please comment away!

Although 40 embassies were billed as being open, I count 35, with ten from Africa (although this excludes Europe, as the EU countries have their own open house next week).  I haven’t been particularly impressed with the community outreach of DC’s African embassy community, this seems like a positive development to me.
