  Artist Arker Kyaw paints a graffiti welcoming U.S. President Barack Obama in Yangon, Myanmar, at dawn on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012. When Arker Kyaw heard President Barack Obama was coming to Myanmar, he gathered 15 cans of spray paint and headed for a blank brick wall under cover of darkness. Kyaw, whose passion is graffiti, labored from 3 am until the sun came up. (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)
