President Obama

You'd have to be living in a cave of some description or marooned on a desert island not to know that Obama was inaugurated yesterday. Given the time difference, Obama was inaugurated soon before I left work, I travelled home in the tube listening to fellow commuters saying "did you hear the speech?" and arrived at home back in front of the TV just in time to see Bush's plane flying off in the general direction of Texas. So, all in all, not very momentous at all. Tane watched the ceremony in his work cafeteria.

Dad and Gaylene, though, were there in D.C. watching as Obama was sworn in. They have a very interesting write-up of the event on their blog (click here) if you are interested in a more riveting description of the inauguration than mine!

Where were you? Did you feel impassioned or indifferent? Are you like Tane and reading opinion pieces on the event, or like the person I heard complaining today about how they are sick of hearing about it?
