Obama-Mania in Vietnam

A new tea shop is opening a few doors down from us. Daniel came home chuckling about it, and I had to take Caleb out to see for myself.

Did you catch that? Here is a better view of the sign announcing the grand opening...

Let me translate...

"Obama Bubble Milk-Tea
Grand Opening
Special Promotion: 10% Discount for the First Two Weeks"

From sea to shining sea, to the far reaches of Southeast Asia, to three doors down, President Obama is being hailed with hope. Maybe in the future he will lend his name to a library or a highway or a battleship. I suppose a back-alley tea shop in Ho Chi Minh City is as good a place as any to start.
