Obama Mania!

Since Barack Obama was elected President of the United States, images of him have appeared on everything imaginable in Senegal.  
Some renditions are better than others. Here's a few examples.  
Some are like this: a not so accurate rendering on the side of a dump truck. 
Bet when he was elected for President, Obama had no idea he'd be enshrined on the side of a dump truck in West Africa.

Or blazed across a duffle bag en route to a Tidjane Muslim Brotherhood celebration in Les Almadies, Dakar, Senegal

Or looking somewhat like a weather man on the side of a golf umbrella

Or a "Yes We Can!" school note book...

And my favorite at the best ice cream shop in Dakar: N'ice Cream's Obama flavor.  Hands down the shop's best flavor.  What is it you ask?  It's a milk chocolate with small vanilla crackers covered in a thin fudge layer.  It is fantastic, amazing, worth trips to the Plateau area just to have a scoop.  But..somehow I suspect that ice cream shops in the United States couldn't get away with the flavor with all of the U.S.'s PC paranoia...

Other things Obama's been seen on: duck taped wallets, underwear, stickers, lots of t-shirts, belts, paintings...the list could go on...

  1. I think maybe N'ice Cream changes up the Obama flavor. The two times I had it, it was dark chocolate ice cream with dark chocolate chunks. Think I'll make a run to Plateau tomorrow...yuummm...
