How quickly can you leave the country? It takes about five minutes; just stroll north along Massachusetts Ave from Dupont Circle (the actual traffic circle) and you pass more than 40 embassies housed in mansions that range from elegant to imposing to discreet. Technically they're on foreign soil, as embassy grounds are the embassy nation's territory.
