Report from Trinidad–The whole world’s watching


Here’s an excerpt from an email Minna wrote from Trinidad, where she is honeymooning with Ben:

I believe it is the first time I have felt proud to be an American. It was astonishing to think that, and I was totally overwhelmed and excited. People here are psyched but already worried his [Obama’s] life will be threatened. We woke up and walked around a major shopping strip in downtown Trinidad in Port of Spain, the capital; a business had a big congratulations banner hanging to Obama. We went to a beach an hour’s drive away and in the sand there was a huge message to Obama someone had written.

2008 — I get an MA, Ben and I get married, Phillies win the world series, Obama gets elected president, Alex and his girlfriend move in together……good year!
