Embassies of Washington, Part 7
Our latest batch is Botswana, Cameroon, Grenada, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Peru, Sierra Leone, and Spain. Upon finding the Spanish embassy I wanted to post it with Mexico's, just down Pennsylvania Avenue, because they have the same architectural feature of building a big modern building behind a small historic facade. I like Spain's more, but that's partly because they have a corner location instead of being uncomfortably sandwiched between ten-story buildings. I also like their banner bragging about winning the World Cup.
