Yesterday I visited the Travellers' Clinic in the American International School where I will be working. I am now officially on staff! The email below was sent out this morning to the staff at most Embassies and High Commissions, so I'm sure I will be busy! There are 600-700 children at the American School.
What's the difference between an Embassy and a High Commission?
A High Commission is diplomatic mission in a Commonwealth country (by another Commonwealth country)
An Embassy is a diplomatic mission to a non-Commonwealth country.
The same applies to ambassador vs high commissioner.

|What better way to promote your Bank, than sponsorship of this empty fountain?|
It is better than the other fountain which is full of stagnant water (and mosquito larvae carrying Dengue fever)...
