We live in a technologically advanced society. We have computers that can process information in seconds. Cars that can hit 0 –60 in even less time. Yet, when it comes to getting information from the government it seems we are still in the dark ages. One of the reasons for this bureaucratic bumbling is the government has too many moving parts that help it run. There are so many departments they start to lose track of themselves. So when it comes time for gathering information citizens experience what's called “red tape”. If you are trying to get travel information it can also be a sticky situation. That is if you don't know where to look. The Bureau of Counselor Affairs actually has a website that is pretty much “red tape” free. It not only displays lots of information, but it's also organized in a way that's easy to use. You can find this government anomaly at travel.state.gov.
