      Of the embassy and its general area.

      There are not masses of demonstrations. Quite the contrary.  It's been quite a serene area... other than the police presence.

          plus every photo you see has a handful of people in it...that's it.  And many of those are photographers and news folks.

          But, I'm not there and you are. Perhaps what is streaming isn't capturing the whole picture. Shrug... I dunno.

          The livestream is pretty good though about catching a panoramic view all around.
