MoBob and I were invited to Peace Corps Alumni Foundation for Philippine Development's 25th anniversary reception at the Philippine Embassy.
MB graciously agreed that the Philippine Embassy was much bigger than the Moroccan Embassy, but I conceded that the Moroccan Embassy in Paris is probably just as big. Oh, those colonial ties.
The Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines in Washington DC. The main building, not counting a couple of annexes. It takes up a whole block.
The Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco. Cozy.
The Embassy invited a dance/song group of young people to perform.
