Since we have some extra room for pics today because of OECS cooperation, I've broken the one photo per country rule for India and Iraq. Like many countries, India has multiple buildings in DC, but they haven't built a showpiece reflective of their anticipated 21st Century power yet. There is a lovely statue of Mahatma Gandhi in front of their ancient chancery building on Embassy Row, so I focused the shot on that. I like the elephants at the entrance to their consular wing, so you get a picture of that too.
America has finally exited Iraq, sort of, and I celebrate by posting pics of three of Iraq's buildings in the city. The chancery is way up on Massachusetts Avenue north of Observatory Circle, near my house. The big building in Dupont Circle which I had always thought was their main building is actually their consular wing. And on 16th Street, I recently discovered the representation in the United States of the Kurdistan Regional Government... perhaps a nascent independent state?
Also this week we have Barbados - the seventh-smallest country in the hemisphere and home of the United States's single embassy covering it and the six OECS countries - and France and Panama. The photos are in alphabetical order: Antigua and Barbuda plus four, Barbados, France, India chancery, India consular wing, Iraq chancery, Iraq consular wing, Iraqi Kurdistan, and Panama.
