Myanmar graffiti artist welcomes Obama

Joanne Lauterjung Kelly sends this picture from Yangon, Myanmar, where President Obama visited today. She writes:

The graffiti wall is the artist's second one --- the first one was covered up with black paint by a rival graffiti artist. (Not the government!) When we stopped to take pictures, people honked and waved at us.

His speech at the university today was packed, and I heard that some of the US "handlers" were scolding very famous Burmese people (that they didn't know were famous) because they were cutting the line. Democracy in action, I guess.


Thanks for the letter. We love when people send us stuff like this.

3. I glad it's one of his smiling faces.

He just looks so loving and caring when he smiles.
