Today a group of my colleagues (all democrats - no surprise) gathered at the Chancery Hotel in Bangalore to cheer Obama on and watch the election returns. It is the first time, and probably the last time that I will:
a) watch election returns at 9:30 am!!!
b) watch election returns poolside
c) watch election returns on another continent, although I guess you never know!!
The shirts say, "Vote from abroad.org" on the back and "Democrats Abroad India"- (and of course "Obamea '08"). Needless to say, we are thrilled with the outcome!
