Because it was a big day in American history, the inauguration of our new president, Madame Tussauds had free admission to all American citizens. Of course my friends and I had to take advantage of the opportunity. We even got our photo taken with the wax Obama.
We then headed to the Hard Rock Cafe to enjoy a meal and watch the inauguration. Whilst waiting in line we met a woman from Arkansas. She said she was there for her fiftieth birthday. She was handing out free Obama badges to everyone in line!
After waiting in line for some time I assumed we would be in the back of the room and only hoped that we would be able to see the television from there. A woman came out and asked if there was a group of three waiting to get in. It was our lucky day! She rushed us inside and we were seated at a table, which was right next to the television. It was an amazing day, an amazing swearing in and Obama’s speech was grand!
The atmosphere was great all day. There were pleasant and smiling faces. People all over the world were feeling hopeful.
