Barack Obama's World Tour

Well, not exactly "world" but a few countries.

I've just seen some of the pictures of his speech in Germany, at the Tiergarten Park in Berlin. It's hard to imagine this is a Senator from Ameria addressing people in a foreign country! Estimates say 200,000 to 250,000 people came to hear him speak!

Compare that to the masses of people who turn out to protest wherever Bush goes!

Hope these images get played across American TV screens. It's been a while since they've been shown that the world still likes them.

Unfortunately I'm not going to be in London this weekend, not sure if he was going to do something similar in the UK, but would have loved to have gone.
