I was in Berlin over the weekend and was in the area of the embassy row. It was very interesting to see every embasssy built in a style representing thier country. I took a picture of the Swiss embassy then headed over to take a picture of the American embassy. Unfortunaly you are not allowed to do this. The american embassy really does seem to represent our country with armed police surrounding the building with high fences, with securty cameras everywhere,with street blocked off to all traffic and with signs posted everywhere saying not to take pictures of the embassy. I have a picture here of the swiss embasssy for contrast.
and I didn,t take a picture of the american embassy but someone else did.
