First Lady Michelle Obama joined the wives of the NATO Summit leaders in a tour of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Strasbourg, France yesterday. Built on the site of a Roman Temple in 1284, the Gothic Roman Catholic church is known for its remarkable architecture and details such as several stained glass windows and distinctive spire.
Mrs. Obama is shown in the photo above listening to an interpreter with Hayrunnisa Gul, the wife of the president of Turkey. Two photos of the NATO Summit wives on tour are on The White House Blog.
President Barack Obama and his wife are on an eight day visit to Europe. Yesterday at the NATO Summit, President Obama won the backing of the leaders in the 28-nation military alliance to send five thousand more troops and personnel to Afghanistan.
