This Saturday, May 14, the D.C. Metro community will have the chance to take part in one of the coolest events in the District.

 

From 10 a.m.-4 p.m., you can take part in the Around the World Embassy Tour, part of Cultural Tourism DC’s Passport DC program.

 

During the six hour event, more than 30 embassies, representing countries and continents from all over the globe, will welcome visitors into their embassies to give them a taste of their respective nations.

 

Attendance is absolutely free, and there is no reservation required.  Each embassy will offer a variety of displays, featuring indigenous food and culture, so that "participants can travel the world".

 

Highlights include:

  • Tasting beer and rum and dancing meringue at the Embassy of the Dominican Republic
  • Playing the Angklung, a traditional bamboo instrument, at the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia
  • And learning about Botswana's health care and judicial system with guest speakers, tasting the cuisine and participating in traditional dance at the Embassy of the Republic of Botswana

Cultural Tourism DC will have information booths set up at the Dupont Circle and Van Ness Metro stations stops, as well as the availability of a free shuttle service.
