I’m still backlogged on blogs here. Here’s a little something from The White House:
When I was about 5 years old, I wanted to be the first Chinese American President of The United States. I very quickly grew out of that idea and I’m glad I did. On my recent trip to New York we decided to take an excursion to Washington D.C. as I haven’t been since I was 7. Through Lisa’s father’s relationship with the Secret Service we were taken on a special tour of The White House. Unlike regular tours we got to go into most of the State rooms as well as go into places that most people don’t get to see.
The first room here (sorry for the blurriness) is the White House theater. This is where they watch movies and the President sometimes practices his speeches. These two chairs are where Michelle and Barrack actually sit when munching on popcorn to Hollywood’s latest release.
Aside from all the official State Rooms, we went down into the bowels of the building and got to see the kitchen! All meals are prepared here. I was much smaller than expected. I have worked in kitchens much larger than this that served a whole lot less people than I assume the White House does.
Although I didn’t see Barrack but his presence was felt as he was in the press room talking to the media. Overall I was surprised to see that all the rooms looked a lot smaller than they do on tv. I guess that’s what a bit of make up and good lighting can do.
