A window of opportunity

obamawindow012109m

I had noticed this sign on a window on my way to work weeks ago but didn't stop to sketch it until yesterday morning, a day after Barack Obama became the 44th president. In his first hours in charge he has frozen the salaries of the White House staff and today he will be announcing the closure of Guantanamo. A new website for the White House also went online as soon as he was sworn in.

[ Hace unas semanas que noté este cartel en una ventana de camino al trabajo. Pero no me paré a dibujarlo hasta ayer por la mañana, un día después de que Barack Obama se convirtiera en el president número 44. En sus primeras horas al mando ha congelado los salarios de los empleados de la Casa Blanca y hoy tiene previsto anunciar el cierre de Guantánamo. La Casa Blanca también estrenó web tan pronto como él hizo el juramento como nuevo presidente. ]
