Shortly after setting up an Instagram account today, the First Lady of the United States wasted no time and started documenting travels while vacationing in Africa.
First stop was to the Martin Luther King Middle School in Dakar with daughters Malia and Sasha. On arrival, they were treated to a welcome ceremony by the students.
Mrs Obama and her daughters also made time to visit to Goree Island, The place where slaves were held.
