I was standing across the street from the US Embassy filming a time-lapse video of the sunrise. A police officer approached me after he observing me over the course of about ten minutes. He asked to see my passport, which I surrendered and he radioed my number to another officer on the other end of his walkie talkie. The other officer, probably sitting behind a desk in front of the computer confirmed that I was in fact a US citizen. I assured him that my actions had nothing to do with espionage and even showed him the video I took of the Malecon. It’s beautiful here.
