YANGON, Myanmar (AP) - When Arker Kyaw heard President Barack Obama was
coming to Myanmar, he gathered 15 cans of spray paint and headed for a blank
brick wall under cover of darkness. Kyaw, whose passion is graffiti, labored
from 3 a.m. until the sun came up. Passing taxi drivers and the occasional
pedestrian gave him signs of encouragement as Obama's grinning, uplifted
face took shape against a background of the American and Myanmar flags.
"I wanted to welcome him," said Kyaw, a 19-year-old with a sweep of styled
hair and a penchant for skinny jeans. [more]-
