I called my ambassador, who's a great lawyer. And most people in business know David Friedman, he's the ambassador to Israel. ... And I said, “What's this 1 billion?” He said, “I can build it for $150,000.” I said, “What?” He said, “I can build it for $150,000, the embassy. We have a building. We have the site. We already own the site. We own the building. I can take a corner of the building, and for $150,000, we can fix it up, make it beautiful, open our embassy. Instead of 10 years from now, we can open it up in three months.”And that's what we did. But I said, “David, let's not go from $1 billion to a hundred-fifty-thousand; let's go to three-, four-hundred-thousand.” And that's what we did. We'll take a piece of the building. It's going to be beautiful. And it'll be somewhat temporary, but it could be for many years because by the time they build it the other way, it's going to be many, many years. ...But that's the way government works. They were going to spend $1 billion, and we're going to spend much less than a-half-a-million. Could've done it for much less, but I said, “Let's make it really nice.” So, that's what it is.
