Michelle Obama Spain Vacation Photos?

Michelle Obama is vacationing at a luxury resort outside Marbella in Spain. Officials say the Obamas will pay for personal expenses.
Michelle Obama is getting lots of criticism because the economy is not the best, there's high unemployment and people is going through difficult times. President Obama himself has preached sacrifice and fiscal discipline.

The criticism aimed at Michelle Obama is that she chose to take her vacation in a foreign country rather than remain in the U.S. and support its fragile economy.

Where can I see photos of Michelle Obama's vacation in Spain? What do you think of all the critics Michelle Obama is getting for her Spanish vacation?

I don't understand why Michelle Obama did this.
President Obama has urged frugality in lean economic times. He says families should take care of their money in these difficult times. Michelle Obama vacationing in Spain is a bad example.

Michelle Obama is taking a costly vacation when so much of the country is suffering to make ends meet. It doesn't help that Michelle, Sasha and their entourage is staying at the Hotel Villa Padierna, a Ritz-Carlton hotel with rates from $500 to $2,500 a night.

These are some of the photos of Michelle Obama's vacation in Spain.

While her friends arrived in Spain on their own, Michelle Obama flew in on a type of aircraft also used by Vice President Joseph Biden. It costs the government $11,555 an hour to operate the plane, according to the Air Force. Assuming a nearly eight-hour flight to nearby Malaga, the total round-trip cost of the flight is about $178,000.
