Photo Session with Obama in Amsterdam

In my previous two posts on our visit to Madame Tussaud's wax museum in Amsterdam, I talked of meeting someone right at the main entrance of the museum and said that I would cover 'that someone' in a separate post. Well this posts lets out the secret as to whom did we meet.

As we entered the museum, the first life size celebrity wax statue was that of US President Obama. And everyone had a choice to pose with him to be 'officially' photographed. So we too had a hurried group photo and we were told that we could collect our photo at the top floor if at all we wanted to have it.

However, to our dismay the photo was badly taken when we reached the top floor to collect it. And we were really pulled down as there was no retake. However, a good man from USA who was employed at the museum came to our rescue.

He took us down and had ourselves photographed not once but thrice so that we could select the best photo out of the three so taken. And this is how it came finally, which was selected by us and we got it duly framed in Madame Tussaud's museum cover:

A memorable photo session with 'Barack Obama'
