Pictures from inside a US embassy

Dear reader

Marketing, you might agree, has always something in common with hyperbolism. I mean, nothing ever is as good as it is promoted. Not even this blogpost.

And if I claim to publish “pictures” from inside a US embassy, it is a bit of both teasing my readership and the national security agency (which has not the best image for the moment).

Yet, I show you pictures from inside, however, it is not the embassy but the ambassador’s residence.

US Ambassador’s Residence

As announced last week, I’ll add some pictures from the breakfast meeting. The atmosphere was very relaxed and still it was very cultivated as I usually don’t wear a tie for breakfast and don’t eat every day from porcelain dishes with golden rim (I usally sit on a table in the public hall of my business school at 7 a.m., drinking coffee from a vending machine in a regular china cup).

By the way, if you are interested in the history of the residence, there is wonderfully designed booklet about the Villa Otium. You can download it by clicking on the ancient archtiect’s plan here below.

Wishing you all a good time.
