The Pains of Fame

 “You know, it’s very frustrating now. It used to be when I came to Europe that I could just wander down to a café, and sit and have some wine and watch people go by, and go into a little shop, and watch the sun go down. Now I’m in hotel rooms all the time and I have security around me all the time. And so just, you know, losing that ability to just take a walk, that is something that is frustrating.”  (Obama in Newsweek)

Sometimes, let’s not forget the joys of being just another face in the crowd.
