The Obama daughters may be on spring break but their trip to Cuba means they’re getting some extra Spanish lessons in.
In a candid picture snapped by White House photographer Pete Souza during the president’s historic trip to Cuba this week, Malia Obama is seen acting as an interpreter for her father as he talks with a Spanish-speaking Cuban man in a restaurant.
It appears the restaurant worker has cracked a joke, since father and daughter sport matching ear-to-ear grins.
White House photographer Pete Souza posted this picture to Instagram on Monday, writing, ‘The President and Malia share a laugh as Malia translates Spanish to English for her dad at a restaurant in Old Havana’
‘The First Lady with Malia and Sasha at La Catedral de la Virgen Maria de la Concepcion Inmaculada in Old Havana,’ Souza wrote of this iamge
Souza released several images on Monday giving a behind-the-scenes look at the president’s historic trip to Cuba.
