While on a walk, I noticed this sign for the Honorary Consulate of Italy. What interested me is that the consulate is called honorary. Google searches find that there are honorary consulates, for many nations, across the US. A Google search for “why are Consulates called Honorary” finds the following explanation:

  • Honorary consuls are called “honorary“ because they perform their work on an honorary basis and are not paid a fee for their services.

While on a walk yesterday, I snapped this photo and I’m sharing it today to because I wanted to capture the love, love, love sign. Also, I was intrigued by the gentleman in the photo. He flash a peace sign which I wish I had captured. While preparing the photo I noticed the license plate which says “Down the Rabbit Hole”.
