    Welcoming Obama Graffiti


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter bigkom saw this graffiti on a wall in Yangon, Myanmar, ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama's landmark visit to the country - the first sitting president ever to do so. Our iReporter said he was not surprised to see the portraits of the U.S. president. "They [residents] think he can change many important things in our country," he said. Obama said during his visit that the democratic and economic reforms started by Myanmar's president, Thein Sein, could lead to "incredible development opportunities". Obama also met fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi, who campaigned for years for democracy in the formerly isolated country, once known as Burma.
