I was also surprised and chuffed to see the "reactions to the announcement of Obama's visit" post quoted at a US Government site, By The People:
"There’s a lot of speculation and excitement ahead of the president’s visit,
says Gayle Pescud, a blogger for Global
Voices who lives in Ghana. Since Obama’s trip was announced in May,
Pescud writes, “from street traders, to young urban professionals, to the newly
elected members of parliament, the chatter was all about one thing.”
More to come on President Obama's visit at GV shortly.
