KA RoadTrip 019The White House, Executive Branch Of Government







While I will confess to not being “The Six Fingered Man” from “Princess Bride”, over the years I have been to “The Nation's Capital” more times than I have fingers and toes.

Although much negativity is made about the politics of Washington D.C, it is a city that truly represents what our country is about. To me, few things represent the greatest of a country than the ability of it's citizen to freely protest against it's government. Here you can do that steps from The White House.

From The Executive to The Judicial and The Legislative, the branches of our government are all located in close proximity to each other. It is rumored that there is even an tunnel that connects The White House to The Congress.
