Whether they are taken by her or by a right-hand person, Michelle Obama's photographs of Africa carry with them a personal touch that no news agency cum photo service (sorry, Reuters) can recreate. A newbie on photo and video sharing network Instagram, the American First Lady's posted her first photo on June 27, 2013. Captioned "My first instagram! So inspired and so impressed by these extraordinary young women. -mo #FLOTUSinAfrica," the shot shows Michelle and daughter Malia posing with staff and students of the all-girls MLK Middle School, Dakar, Senegal.
Michelle Obama, her husband US President Barack Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha are currently on a tour of Africa, touching down in Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. See photos from Mrs Obama's Instagram feed (in chronological order) below.
