Didn't the American Embassy become the AIT after the yanks handed all their military stuff over to Taiwan in the 1970's?
There are millions of people in the world. And none of those people is an extra. They're all leads in their own stories.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced. That's why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

yes and all the officers have to resign from the foreign service before they can work there. And then when they get reposted they miraculously get rehired :)

Its an embassy in everything BUT name. Just like Taiwan, its a country in everything but name as well. So essentially we have a "fake" embassy in a "fake" country :)


It handles the affairs on behalf of the US govt.

I wish I had not lost the passport I had issued by the US embassy in Taiwan. Thats a collectors item im sure.

And I also have a passport issued by the US embassy in HongKong. Now thats another collectible im sure.
