Next, we visited the Embassy of Poland. Although I've never visited Poland, this quick introduction to the country piqued my interest. The Embassy of the Republic of Poland is the longest-serving embassy building in Washington, DC. Interactive activities like a puzzle, dough making, and searching for hidden amber in the sand delighted Natalia and Alexia. I loved the pierogi and herring salad that the Executive Chef prepared. So delicious.
Billboards and backdrops encouraged guests to take pictures. "Look, Mom! It's one of those backdrops from an awards show!"

We started our European tour at 10 a.m. and took a quick break for lunch, but it was already 2 p.m. when we decided to join the very long line to see Belgium. Luckily, the girls protected their skin from the sun with these chic hats they picked up from Poland. We waited almost an hour to visit the Embassy of Belgium, but the wait was worth it.
During our visit, we enjoyed some Belgium beer and chocolates while we learned about history and culture.
Admission is free at the EU Open House, but be sure to bring your id to show at the embassy. You'll also have to pass through a metal detector or some kind of security check at each embassy. Learn more about this annual event at www.EUOpenHouse.org
