COME LIVE AT THE US EMBASSY


 These are the buildings (foreground, not the higher-risers in the back) of the former US Embassy in Belgrade. Years back a stipulation came into vigor that US embassies have to be a certain distance from the street, so its present location is much farther away and set back....surrounded by a seemingly impenetrable wall. Little chance of getting a photo of that.  I tried to find a photo online, but they are non-existent or else blurred out.  Sign of the times, maybe, but most other major embassies I googled have photos.

Anyway, now the old embassy is a luxury apartment building...

A sad world we live in when you have to be so careful with an embassy building. Nice looking apartment.
