Obama's Hawaii Neighbourhood

Travel writer Rob Kay has designed an intriguing website, Obama's Neighbourhood, dedicated to the 44th president's Hawaiian heritage. Kay became interested in the subject while researching a Wall Street Journal article entitled “Obama Slept Here - Exploring the Modest Hawaii Neighborhood That Raised the Next President” and decided to expand it into a website. Barack Obama was born in Honolulu on August 4, 1961, and spent most of his childhood there. Several intriguing Google maps on the site pinpoint Barack's early homes. Rob Kay is a veteran guidebook writer and the website provides a clear family history of Obama in Hawaii. There are photos of childhood friends with information about what they're doing now, the churches where Obama worshiped, links to fascinating articles, and even a photo of graffiti “King Obama” left on the pavement of one of his schools. Kay's Videos page has four informative Youtube films on Barack Obama and Hawaii. If you'll be visiting Oahu, you might want to print out the self-guided tours of Obama's old haunts. Obama's Neighbourhood will give you many insights into the man soon to become the president of the United States.
