      The second you enter any place for the first time, you are forced to get a first impression of that place. I believe first impressions are big discoveries made in a small instance, so they are very meaningful.

      ... up to the start of the steep streets, and the American Embassy, which has extremely heavy security, including locals in various uniforms, expat heavy hitters, all with sub-machine guns, and a group of plain clothes locals sitting on the grass beside the road trying to get a gun going.
