Michelle Obama makes an Impression in London

April 2, 2009

At the BBC, they describe the warm welcome received by Michelle Obama in London for the G20 summit, especially at a center for cancer patients:

Mrs Obama was friendly and at ease as she introduced herself personally to everyone as “Michelle” and even sat down to have a traditional cup of British tea, something she admitted she did not drink too often.

“The warmth and patience she showed and the time she took to engage with everyone was greatly appreciated,” said Laura Lee, chief executive of Maggie’s Cancer Centre.

Trudi Cogdell, a patient at the centre, described her meeting with the First Lady as “very friendly”.

“She’s a lovely lady, she’s very open… she’d talk to anyone”.
