US and Russian presidents earing burgers
Picture author: Kevin Lamarque
Picture date: June 24, 2010.
Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev and U.S. President Barack Obama have burgers for lunch at Ray's Hell Burger restaurant in Arlington, Virginia. Traveling by motorcade, the two presidents ventured to Ray's Hell Burger in Arlington, Va., a popular hamburger joint just outside the nation's capital. During their meal, Obama and Medvedev sat at a table with their interpreters, sharing a conversation through them.
The picture shows heads of two superpower countries as normal, relaxed men having a meal in a regular fast-food restaurant. Picture lacks the glitter of official meetings between two presidents. It also shows that sometimes you can make key decisions in a spontaneous way. After eating the meal, presidents returned to their route.
