Embassies are fascinating entities having existed for longer than the concept of the modern nation-state.
They are often misunderstood and can offer a unique insight into the diplomatic issues that countries face.
In this episode I cover:
What embassies and consulates are,
Their unofficial varieties like from Taiwan,
Their titles e.g. the People's Bureua,
The difficulties in deciding where and how to build them,
And the laws that govern them.
