Indonesian Embassy Residence Open House

I always heard that Embassies in Washington have open days where pretty much anyone can walk in and get acquainted with the culture of that Embassy. A few weeks ago, I met a nice Indonesian lady while getting my nails done at the mall. We started talking and I told her that I was actually born in Indonesia and had never been back there after then. She invited me for the open house over at the Embassy's residence so I of course decided to see what it was like to enjoy a mini bit of the country and its culture.

When I got there I was in awe of the beautiful residence and the gorgeous attire guests wore. Everyone was so inviting, I got a chance to mingle with guests from other embassies as well and had a taste of the lovely local dishes. 

I think the icing on the cake was getting to meet the Ambassador and his wife who were very warm and respectfully took pictures with every guest including myself. 

It was a lovely afternoon that I’m sure would be a great visit for the next group of people attending next year. So once again DC never seizes to stay entertaining, I would recommend this outing for folks looking to explore a new culture within the area of Washington.
