Yes We Can!

Congratulations President-elect Obama!

With great excitement, some tension, some tears, laughter, debate and cheers, we stayed up well past 2AM watching the election returns and then celebrating Obama's landslide victory! Even here on the small island of Bequia, the US Presidential election is huge news. The bar was packed last night with Obama supporters, all local residents and us (so far we haven't met any McCain supporters in the islands!) and the first people we saw this morning immediately congratulated us on America's new President. The sun is shining and optimism abounds.
