Six Countries in One Weekend

Last weekend, I had the privilege of visiting Brazil, Bolivia, Sri Lanka, Gabon, Benin, and Barbados–all within the confines of Washington DC.

It was Passport DC 2017’s Around the World Embassy Tour, the first of two consecutive weekends during which most of the DC area embassies are open to the public. Free.
