As Barack Obama is about to be sworn in as our new president, I can't help but think of Kenya where, as I have mentioned on this blog many times, I spent some blissful years as a kid. I feel a lot of pride about Obama's election, not only as an American but also as if I were Kenyan somehow.
As the new president made his way to Washington D.C. by train, I thought I'd share a picture of my mum, my sister and me on a train in Kenya, between Nairobi and Naivasha. And a picture of me at a school party in Nairobi - I'm sure the younger presidential daughter, adorable little Sasha, wouldn't mind wearing my fairy costume to the inauguration ball...
If you want a piece of the inauguration, check out the really cool Runway To Change collection - I love Tory Burch's Obama tote, Zac Posen's Jan 20, 2009 tee-shirt and Deréon's Hope tee. I want them all, especially the latter!!!
Also check out Shepard Fairey's new companion picture to his already iconic Obama portrait, created for the Adopt A Pet campaign. Download the image here.
