Hanoi, Vietnam
May 23, 2016

President Obama's motorcade left the JW Marriott at 10:20am.

Motorcade arrived at the presidential palace at 10:34am.

Lots of people lined the sidewalks along the motorcade route. It's a foggy, humid day. A couple of them waved American flags, there was one sign welcoming President Obama. Some cute school children wearing red smiley face shirts cheered as the motorcade passed.

A preset pool is covering the arrival ceremony so look for a separate report on that.

Pool is in position for the official photo op of POTUS and Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang.
