Sweet Home Obama Bar
According to the Jakarta Post, the two home compound where Barack Obama lived from the ages of 9 to 11, may be up for sale. Currently valued at $3 million, there have supposedly been offers of five times that much - assuming Senator Obama becomes President on November 4th. One prospective buyer wants to turn the premises into a cafe that serves an "Obama-blend coffee," a mix of beans from Kenya and Java and "stroopwafels," a caramel-type treat brought to Indonesia by the Dutch while they were occupying the country. Now that is a place that I would like to go and hang out in the future.
