embassy tour

from across the intersection you can’t see the little signs on the tall wall that indicate ‘no photography’ in the vicinity. but the soldiers can see you. one well armed man came out of the compound, escorted us across the intersection and inside the security area where we were scanned, patted down, ushered into a back room with 2 way mirrors, and questioned about why we were videoing.
we gave the honest lame story. they took down our information, photographed our cameras, let us delete the videos and let us keep all our everest trek pictures. then after about an hour they released us.
fortunately it turned out to be the american embassy.
