A Convocation of Ambassadors

September 24, 2008

Well you tell me what is the collective noun for a set of ambassadors and consuls and other embassy people.

It seemed to go well, I speak about ten words of Spanish so the detailed report will have to follow when I get the translations.

Spain, Cuba, México, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Brasil, Peru, Chile.
