I have been pretty flat out since I arrived, working with his staff in the press office, and juggling work back in the US, a foot in both countries.

I have an hour of downtime this afternoon. The US is sleeping. The President is arriving from China in an hour.

I thought I would use it to catch my breath, and post some photos. These are glimpses caught here and there with my iPhone. I will try and get more as I go. (I don’t, believe it or not, spend all day at the beach! I’ve actually only been to the beach with a towel, etc. once for about an hour and a half. But I did get a quick swim in the ocean.) Most of my time is spent at my computer — just like home!
