During Michelle Obama’s weeklong visit to Africa, the first lady met with former South African President Nelson Mandela at his home. This was the second official trip Mrs. Obama has made without her husband, and she told one greeter that the president was "pouty" about missing out on the visit. The Obamas first met Mandela and his wife back in 2006 (Mandela has a framed photo of their first meeting in his office). Accompanied by her mother, daughters Malia and Sasha, and her nephew and niece, Michelle made it her mission to reach out to young people and focus on reducing the threat of AIDS. Mrs. Obama devoted much of the trip to community service, including visits to children’s schools and women’s centers.
