by . November 12th, 2012

With President Obama returning to the White House for another four years of presidency we couldn’t help but imagine that he is probably  up all night working and making calls inside the Oval Office or probably reading congratulatory letters from the different world leaders on his success in securing one of the most prestigious and toughest job in the world.

While we are happy to see that the elections has finally ended and everyone have started to go back to their regular programming, we here in YTD would like to take you on a tour to the impressive presidential palaces and residences in the world where the different world leaders work or reside. From the White House to the Rashtrapati Bhavan in India,  living or working in one of these architectural marvels is a dream for everyone, specially those who are aspiring to be the next head of state.
