The Obamas are at it again. This time they are holidaying in Indonesia doing a spot of sightseeing. They have been pictured visiting temples and whitewater rafting. The family are spending time together before Malia begins university in the fall. Barack is quite familiar with the country as he spent many years as a child in the country. His mother, Ann Dunham, conducted anthropological research back in the 1960s.
This time Barack returns with his family to speak in front of the Indonesian Diaspora Congress on the 1 July.
Barack and his family have been holidaying lavishly around the world, and not everyone is happy with their long list of holiday destinations.
Former Carter adviser Pat Caddell said, “I think the Bernie Sanders wing of the party, when they see President Obama, whom they instinctively want to defend being the corporatist president, I think it makes the base uneasy.”
You can hardly blame them. Barack enjoys the lifestyle of the rich and famous, rubbing shoulders with Richard Branson and the like. Many people were hoping he would be the advocate for the working class – they got that wrong in so many ways!

Photographers captured the Obama family vacation to Bali, Indonesia, where they were pictured sightseeing, whitewater rafting and enjoying a summer vacation.
Former President Barack Obama and his family spent a few days traveling through the Bali Province in Indonesia, where they notably stopped at the Hindu Balinese water temple to visit and explore, reports the Daily Mail.
Former first daughters Malia and Sasha and former first lady Michelle wore sarongs over their clothes while visiting the temple, as is tradition when touring a holy place. The temple is known for it’s “holy water,” which locals use for ritual purification.
