Why does Luxembourg still have such a fancy embassy? What, do you suppose, does the Ambassador from Luxembourg actually do? Does Luxembourg have a foreign policy?
Money can't buy everything, but it sure does buy beautiful gardens.
St. Jerome in front of the Croatian Embassy.
In the Grimly Appropriate category, note that the Haitian Embassy is falling apart and has graffiti on the front door. Also tall weeds in the cracked parking pad right in front. Love the low-rent look of the air conditioners in the windows.
This vacant building is plastered all over with Zoning Hearing signs, which I assume means somebody is turning it into condos. And it's a great building, although you would have to live next door to the Burmese ambassador.
As you can see, it's a perfect day for wandering the city.
