Yum! Michelle Obama Feasts on French Fries and Fat Cakes in Botswana

GABORONE, Botswana (AP) — Michelle Obama is in Botswana to begin the second leg of a weeklong goodwill visit to Africa.

The U.S first lady arrived Friday morning for a full day of events.

She is scheduled to help paint a mural at a clinic that treats more than 4,000 children infected with HIV/AIDS.

Mrs. Obama will also eat lunch with women leaders from different generations and pay a courtesy call on President Ian Khama.

In the evening, she and family members traveling with her will have dinner at a nature park that is home to giraffes, elephants, zebras, baboons and other animals.

The first lady's mission began last Monday in South Africa. She, daughters Malia and Sasha, her mother and a niece and nephew return Monday to the White House.
