Ch(I)na just called to say I love you

So, what does the leader of the Free World do on his first trip to China?  Eat and see the sites, of course!  POTUS was honored with a state dinner reception at the famous Great Hall of the People in Beijing, replete with a multi-course meal, peafowl, and the Military Band of the People’s Liberation Army.  The somewhat odd musical choices included performances of Wonderful Night, I Just Called to Say I Love You, and In the Mood.  What happened to some good old fashioned Chinese opera?

Obama also checked out the sites, including the Forbidden City

For a Forbidden City, there sure are a lot of people here! (Mandel Ngan/AFP/Getty Images)

Of course, the Oba-mao shirt isn’t the only product coming onto the Chinese market.  It could be hairy deciding what to come home with…
