JAKARTA: Street vendors in Indonesia cooked up “Obama” fried rice and children from the president-elect’s old elementary school will sing the
Star-Spangled Banner. Kenyans were planning parties for their most famous son.

Across the world, people gathered on Tuesday to mark the inauguration of Barack Obama as if he were one of their own.

In the Indonesian capital, where Obama spent four years as a young boy, students from his former school were to perform old-style dances from across the world’s most populous Muslim nation.

Old classmates of the president-elect would come together to watch his speech at the Menteng 1 elementary school, where he is fondly remembered as a chubby kid nicknamed Barry.

“I’m proud that the next president is someone who I have shared time with,” said Rully Dasaad, a former Obama classmate and fellow Boy Scout. “It was a crucial time for children our age, it is when we learned tolerance, sharing, pluralism, acceptance and respect of difference in cultures and religions.”
