Arlette Saenz: President Obama Reunites With Family In Kenya Over Dinner

It was a big family reunion when President Obama arrived here in Kenya today. Obama, who is visiting his father’s homeland for the fourth time but for the first time as president, sat down with three-dozen members of his Kenyan family for dinner at his hotel. He sat next to his half-sister Auma and step-grandmother Sarah Obama, who was the third wife of the president’s paternal grandfather.

She’s affectionately known to many as Mama Sarah, but to President Obama, she’s just Granny. When Obama first visited Kenya in 1988, Auma picked him up at the airport in a sputtering baby-blue Volkswagen Beetle that was missing a muffler. Tonight, it was a much different scene as the president treated Auma to a ride in the presidential motorcade on his fourth visit to Kenya.

Justin Huggler: Why is Barack Obama drinking beer at 11am?

Angela Merkel welcomed Barack Obama to the G7 summit with a traditional Bavarian breakfast on Sunday – complete with a half-litre of beer.But before he could get down to business, Mrs Merkel treated him to a full Bavarian breakfast of white sausages, pretzels and foaming lager. Eleven in the morning might be considered a little early for a beer in some parts of the world, but in Bavaria breakfast is not complete without a weissbier, as the local wheat beer is called.

It’s not quite as hard-drinking as it sounds: Bavarians don’t down a quick pint before heading to the office every morning. It originates in Frühschoppen – a local tradition of meeting for a drink late in the morning on Sundays and holidays. According to Bavarian custom, the sausages cannot be eaten after 12 noon, because no preservatives are used and they are made fresh every day. Therefore those who wish to wash their sausages down with a beer must get supping before that time. The local saying is that the sausages must not be allowed to hear the church bells chime noon.
