See? This is why I don't have to worry about posting those boring pics of Condi from yesterday. India's foreign ministry obviously wanted to make the affable giantess feel at home so they sent the ambassador closest to her scale (see above) to greet her. We never get fun shots like this with Condi anymore. Of course Ursula can get out 'n' about a lot more than our Secretary of State, since she's bullet-proof and has super-powers (mighty-morphin' scarf power) and everything.
I think the Indians were hoping that after the photo-op, Ursula would hop on the elephant and conquer Pakistan or something.
But I know that Pony Pals really love pictures which emphasize Ms. Plassnik's most remarkable features, her height and her scarves, so here's a special treat also from Friday:

Note: Let's give Ursula a pass for the awful shoes, shall we? This ain't Dr. Ferragamo, folks. This is a real diplamazon!
