Antalya, Turkey

President Obama's motorcade left the Calista resort at 10:22am.

It was an uneventful ride, but it was an unusual motorcade in that the press van was a mere seven vehicles behind the presidential limo as opposed to its typical location way at the end. The streets were largely empty, even of other cars.

Mr. Obama arrived at the Regnum Carya Resort at 10:29am. Motorcade passed some reporters wearing colored vests labeled PRESS going through security at the entrance of the resort. On the ride through the resort's narrow, winding road, the motorcade passed some folks attending the summit either walking or sitting in stretch golf carts, soccer fields, a large, colorful kiddie water park and a golf course that's taunting POTUS as he begins his week of summit events.

Motorcade arrived what looks like the golf course clubhouse at 10:35am for his bilat with President Erdogan of Turkey. Pool did not see POTUS enter. We are holding for the spray after the meeting.
