US President Barack Obama came to Africa partially to connect with the continent of his forefathers. On Monday, he met an ancestor of an altogether different kind: 'Lucy' the 3.2 million-year-old partial skeleton of a hominid discovered in Ethiopia. Later, he attended a state dinner. Obama is on a two-country tour of Africa that started in Kenya, where his father was born. He arrived in Ethiopia on Sunday and will return to the United States on Tuesday.
