The past week has been a complete blur. So much so that when my neighbor asked me, "So, what was it like?" I had no idea what she was talking about. She meant the White House. Hmm. What was it like? Well, the Obamas are fantastic, the house itself is fantastic and it was incredible to just be there but I have to admit to being a little underwhelmed by the attendance. There didn't seem to be that many Irish Americans there. However, I did see plenty of people who have piggybacked Irish affairs to further their own careers. More on them anon!
