Obama Conspiracy Theories broke the story of a Kenyan tour guide company offering an Obama tour, including the “original home of the world’s most powerful President,” the village of Kogelo in Kenya. The Kenyan tour company’s web page also mentioned that President Obama was born in Hawaii at the Kapi’olani medical center. [This is the only Kenyan web site I know of that names the hospital where President Obama was born.]
Obama tourism isn’t limited to Kenya
Several companies are offering Obama tours as reported by WhyGo Hawaii. And yes, the tours include: the “Kapiolani Medical Center (place of Obama’s birth).”
However, in a place that is already a major tourist destination like Oahu, there has been a veritable onslaught of Obama based tourism.
There are now several different operators offering up tours of Obama’s Hawaii–”from the places he most recently stayed during his 11-day vacation to the islands in January to the ice cream shop he worked in as a teenager….
Michelle Obama was quoted saying, “You can’t really understand Barack until you understand Hawaii” and for those looking to better understand Hawaii and the President can check out these various Obama tours in Hawaii.
