Gawkers galore as Michelle Obama soaks up Spanish sun
Curious onlookers gathered as US First Lady Michelle Obama, her youngest daughter Sasha and their entourage soaked in the Mediterrean sun on a sealed-off beach in southern Spain on Friday.
Dozens of passers-by were seen pressing against a security cordon at Estepona beach to catch a glimpse of the Obamas, whose four-day vacation has set off a frenzy since her arrival on Wednesday.
Obama, 46, and Sasha, nine, have been staying at a luxury resort near Marbella. President Barack Obama and eldest daughter Malia, 12, who is attending summer camp, have remained behind in the United States.
On Thursday, the first lady visited the historic city of Grenada and took part in a flamenco show. She meets Spain's King Jean Carlos and his wife Queen Sofia in Majorca on Sunday before heading back to the United States.
