No, I did not run for congress or the senate. I just toured and visited Washington D.C. with my family.
While in DC, we toured the Capitol building and even sat at the House of Representatives. Of course the House was not in session, or else I could have helped them draft a bill pardoning all pinoy TNT.
However, we were able to sit in the Supreme Court hall during a live deliberation of a case. Too bad they did not ask for my opinion.
We also visited the White House and were able to walk into the Blue Room where guests and foreign dignitaries are received. Well, I’m foreign alright, but I don’t know about being dignitary. (Unfortunately no cell phones or cameras allowed inside, or I could have called my mother while I’m inside the White House.)
As a nerd, I have to go to the library. The Library of Congress, that is.
We also visited the museums………
And the monuments.
It was an enlightening trip. Maybe I’ll visit Washington DC again someday…….. when I run for President.
