Blogger Sweet here--filing short on Blackberry from airport in Amsterdam. I'm with Sen. Barack Obama's traveling party en route to Cape Town, South Africa for the first leg of his African visit.
Wearing a White Sox cap, Obama said he went to the meditation room at the airport ...killing time while we changed planes. (II wandered to a bookstore and purchased Martin Meredith's book, "The State of Africa.)
We boarded at Dulles in Washington. In line waiting to board, I met the crews from two--yes two- documentary teams doing pieces on Obama., one based in New York and another in Chicago.
So long from Amsterdam.
Next blog from South Africa.
