Obama Arrives is Father Land

President Barack Obama arrived in Kenya on Friday, his first stop on a three-day visit to the African continent--and the first time he has visited his father's home country as president.

Disembarking from Air Force One on Friday evening, Obama was given a bunch of flowers by a young girl before greeting Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
