Wikipedia Description: Embassy of Venezuela, Washington, D.C.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Embassy of Venezuela in Washington, D.C. is the diplomatic mission of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United States. The embassy is located at 1099 30th Street, Northwest, Washington, D.C. in the Georgetown neighborhood.
The embassy also operates Consulates-General in Boston, Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, Houston, Miami, and New Orleans.
Because diplomatic relations have been broken off between Nicolás Maduro administration and the U.S since January 24, 2019, all of the Venezuelan embassies and consulates in the US are now being administered by Juan Guaidó's representatives, recognized by the US as the acting president of Venezuela during the Venezuelan presidential crisis, and Venezuelans now have restricted access to consular services.
Handover during the Venezuelan presidential crisis
On January 24, 2019, Nicolás Maduro ordered the closure of both the embassy and all Venezuelan consulates in the United States. This move came as a response to US recognition of opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president.
On January 29, 2019 Juan Guaidó appointed Carlos Vecchio to serve as Venezuelan chargé d'affaires to the United States. This move was recognized by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Occupation by Code Pink
On April 10, 2019, the group Code Pink began occupying the embassy by invitation from the Maduro government. As of May 1, fifty US activists supporting Maduro were occupying the building and the embassy was locked down. Hundreds of supporters of Guaidó assembled in front of the embassy on May 1, to hear an address by Carlos Vecchio. There was a clash between pro-Maduro and pro-Guaidó protesters. Code Pink alleges that the opposition became violent and cut off food to the embassy, claiming that "the police are doing absolutely nothing".

2021 photos: This year was filled with hope. Yes, the COVID-19 pandemic is still with us but it was hoped that restoring sanity to the White House. the rapid vaccine role-out, and a government that finally cared would put things back to normal again. But the force was strong in the evil anti-vaxxer movement and the virus variants made quick use of that so we're still dealing with this crap. Plus the continued impact of the Trump putsch attempt... Sigh.
Trips this year:
after getting fully vaccinated, I made a trip down to Asheville, NC in May to visit my dad and his wife Dixie and returned again in early October,
in mid-July, I made a quick trip up to Stockbridge, MA to see the Norman Rockwell Museum again as well as Daniel Chester French's place @ Chesterwood.
Number of photos taken this year: about 283,000, slightly up from 2020 but still really low.
