Since I was in town for the Thanksgiving holiday with my family , I did a little bit of sightseeing in the Dupont Circle area of town.

The last time I was there, in October, I saw some of the embassies on Embassy Row .

This time, even though it was raining, I decided to go see some of the embassies in the Dupont Circle area .

It was raining so hard that I was about to turn back and just take the Metro back to my neice’s house in the Petworth section if tiwn.

But then I saw what I was looking for , New Hampshire Avenue, a place that I couldn’t find on my embassy tour the last time.

Because of the rain, some of the pictures aren’t that clear and some of the flags are wrapped around the flag pole.

Also, there aren’t as many embassies on this part, so God willing , the next time I come to town, hopefully the weather will be better and there’ll be more embassies to see .

The Embassy of Equitorial Guinea

The Embassy of Namibia

Embassy of Jamaica

Sorry the flag is wrapped around the flag pole but its the Embassy of Montenegro

Embassy of Zimbabwe

Embassy of Angola


That’s right , I said part 1 because there will be more embassies to see.

Most of them are in the Dupont Circle area of the city, near the University of District of Columbia, but most of them are on a stretch of Massachusetts Avenue known as Embassy Row.

Some of them, like Mexico and Canada are right on Pennsylvania Avenue .

Two of them are in the U Street Corridor .

I was able to take pictures of some of them.

It always helps to ask if you can take a picture of the embassy as I did with a very kind lady from the Tunisian embassy.

You never know because even though the embassies are in the United States , the embassies follow the laws of their own countries .

So if you want to take a picture of the Saudi Arabia embassy or the Mauritius embassy , ask first because you never know .

I took pictures of the Canadian , Philippines, Australia , Oman, Chile, Tunisia and Trinidad and Tobago embassies .

I have so many to go but since Washington DC is so close to New York City , the other embassies will have to wait.
