Another stop on Senator Obama's itinerary was the refugee camps in Darfur, seeing firsthand the effects of genocide on the people of Chad. The most personal stop on his tour of Africa is perhaps Senator Obama's emotional homecoming to Kisumu, Kenya, the home land of his father, where thousands greeted him upon his arrival.
