Barack Obama‘s win as the next President of the United States inspired celebration in streets across America and the world. In New York City alone it was like Mardi Gras in neighborhoods (check out Brooklyn, above) through out the city: cow bells, singing, hugging and dancing. Scandalist’s own Becky Howard, who’s based in London, described her city’s reaction:
It was mad here, almost as if we were electing our own leader. London last night was totally overtaken by election fever – loads of bars stayed open to follow the results as they happened…I’d say 99% of Londoners were supportive of Barack and totally worried that he might not win at the last moment. Everyone was in massive party mode, and it definitely captured everyone’s imagination – not just the ex-pat Americans living over here.
