Loved seeing so many beautiful embassies with amazing architecture, flags, and memorials. There's such a range as you walk along the large area, from Albania to Zimbabwe, Moldova to Mauritania, Togo to Tanzania - loved it.

I used to live in the area called Embassy Row in Dupont Circle, WDC. It was my apartment 722 at 2000 massachusetts ave, nw., washington, d.c. 20008. Very peaceful area, but hard to find parking near by.

This is a great area for a morning walk (less busy) to view the architecture and the homes of our visiting dignitaries. With Dupont Circle nearby its a no brainer!

We did a driving tour of embassy row. I would recommend going during the open house tours. I would love to see the inside decor on many of these interesting homes.
