tomorrow's the big day!
everybody in senegal is very excited -- even those in my little village. they were all very understanding of my need to leave the village and come up to dakar to watch the inauguration.
there's a big club in dakar hosting a big inauguration party tomorrow. on my stipend, there's no way i can afford to go but at least i can sneak a picture. as you can see, obama and i are touching hands. maybe i can get some of his charisma through osmosis.
it's history in the making!
*update* the new york times was calling for readers' photos of the inauguration buzz so i sent one in...and they posted it! i'm in the new york times! check it out.
