What credit crunch?

Cashing in on Obama-mania

Cashing In, originally uploaded by TwoCrabs.

Mr. Crab covered the World Travel Fair in East London today. First, the event was jam-packed with industry professionals and potential tourists, so the travel industry appears to be faring well in this credit crunch climate. Second, I happened to walk by the Kenya Tourism Bureau booth and was greeted with posters of President-elect Barack Obama being used to promote tourism to his father's homeland. Think Obama is getting any royalties from this use of his image!?
