Embassies of Washington, Part 12 (Middle East)
Salaam and good evening, my friends. Today is our Middle East special, as I have finally snapped the Saudis' elegant edifice between the Kennedy Center and the Watergate. Four of these embassies are in the International Drive area featured in the last post (along with Bahrain's and Kuwait's, who I sadly ran out of room for in this group of ten, but you'll see them soon), the others scattered in residential neighborhoods across town. From the top: Egypt, the highly inconspicuous Iranian interests section of the embassy of Pakistan, and the embassies of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.
