Oh, the places the mayor goes

STAMFORD — Mayor Michael Pavia spent two days of his last month in office visiting Washington, D.C., where he met with federal officials and squeezed in a quick tour of the White House.

It’s not the most exotic place Pavia has been to as the city’s mayor. Last year he went to London during the U.S. Olympics to meet with Royal Bank of Scotland executives. In 2011 he traveled to Lima, Peru, to formalize Stamford’s sister-city relationship with the South American city.

Here’s our full coverage of the mayor’s latest trip which, unlike his London and Lima travels, will be paid for by Stamford taxpayers. See below for his full itinerary:
