The Embassy of the Republic of Congo is located less than a two-minute walk from the apartment at 1618 S Street. This is truly one of the locations where the local community and the global community begin to blur their lines. There is an obvious effort on the part of the city to make the neighborhood suitable for ambassadors. While some blatantly transplant themselves in, this embassy seems to fit into the architectural “vibe” of the area already without standing out too blatantly. In this way, I believe it is a more positive inclusion of foreign entities in an already vibrant and established area.
