The Obamas' Continental Drift: There's Work to Do
Barack and Michelle Obama's European adventure? No fancy parties or state dinners -- this is a working trip. They'll spend today and tomorrow in London for the G-20 conference; they'll meet privately with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, have dinner prepared by celebrity "Naked Chef" Jamie Oliver at No. 10 Downing Street and tour the Royal Opera House. (Gordon Brown is giving out goody bags: British ties, tea towels, candles and chocolates.)
On Friday, it's on to the French-German border for the 60th anniversary of NATO in Baden-Baden, Germany. Paparazzi highlight: when Michelle joins Carla Bruni-Sarkozy on Saturday for a tour of a cancer institute and the Strasbourg Cathedral. Then it's off to the Czech Republic for dinner with European Union reps and, finally, to Turkey. And no, Malia and Sasha didn't get to go -- they're back in school after last week's spring break.
