'Obamarama': Bar-Cafe in Benin

The second installment in this blog's occasional Obamarama feature comes from alert reader Dorothea Wartena, who sent in a photo of a colorful (if not particularly hopping) Bar-Cafe Barack Obama from the small West African nation of Benin.


Dorothea explains:

I took this picture on 1 January 2009 in Fidjrosse, a ward in
Cotonou, the capital of Bénin. Barack Obama is also highly
popular here. For example, on inauguration day a new 'Barack
Obama University' was opened in Cotonou.

Excellent spotting, Dorothea. Please keep the submissions coming via e-mail. Remember, the only rule of Obamarama is the more random, the better.
