America’s first embassy in Morocco

Hello fellow Americans, Did you know that Morocco was the first foreign country that recognized the newly-formed USA? This picture isĀ of the second-floor-plaza level of the first embassy and also the first American public property outside the United States. You can go there too, for free. Donated at the time by a grateful Muslim government. I was there in 2008 when I perused the archives for my own amusement while my local guide stayed in the lobby under guard. This building is filled with historic documents and photos of our American past, but its in Africa. Its an amazing place.
