First Lady's World Tour: Week 1
With only 17 months left in office, the first lady is eager to reaffirm her role on the world stage. Long interested in international politics and social development, she launches a four-continent world tour designed not just to capture headlines, but to demonstrate her concern for the welfare of the global village. Her first stop is to a country still in mourning over the loss of its King, and Oy! she still gets a little verklempt thinking about it. But as she tours, the F.L. is struck by an eerie feeling that the place reminds her of . . . home? And although her previous statements about this part of the world have raised eyebrows, she is determined that this time around, any olive branch she proffers will be served up with a bagel.
What is the name of the place the first lady is visiting?
