The White House…and our non-tour of it…

Because of the sequestration we were not able to take a tour of the White House.  Now please don’t think this post is an open invitation for a debate on politics.  This post is merely a description of my very brief visit to the White House.  Here goes…

TA DAH!!!  We are on our tour of the front of the White House!  WoooHooo!!  This was as close as we could get and would have to do.  I was disappointed but hey…stuff happens.

It’s really a very beautiful building.

I’m not sure what this was about…

I don’t even remember if the scroll was written in English or not.  Just kind of interesting seeing this right on one of the streets. 

And I don’t know what this was about either…

The lady “manning” the display was nice.  Chatted with the guy in the pic for a bit but I never really understood what the issue was. 

One of the things that I LOVE about travel is the different and interesting things that you can see.  Much different than where I am from but that is what makes travel so awesome.

And there were folks on segues.  I may have to try it sometime.  I think I might feel kind of silly until I got the hang of it.  But even then I might still feel silly.  Or I might feel super cool and important.  I guess I’ll just have to try it and see.

I really wish we had been able to tour the White House.  It would have been cool but I’m sure we’ll visit again and then maybe we’ll get our chance. 

  • Have you ever toured the White House?
  • Have you ever visited DC? 
  • What are your travel plans for the coming year?

Stay awesome!!
