Around the world in 6 hours

May 5th was the embassy tour in DC for the non-European embassies, and yesterday was the tours of the EU embassies. I went to several embassies both days (there was no way to go to all of them) and it was a lot of fun. The embassies give out information, food, and promotional items from their country; they display artwork, music, dance, and traditional dress. It was a really great and unique opportunity to see quick snippets of other people and cultures. Here are some pictures, unfortunately there are some I don't have because they are on other people's cameras (like me and Michael-Sean holding a giant Australian snake).
