Then it is off to Prague for an EU summit. There he will meet with Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus, former Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, and former Czech President Vaclav Havel. Next up is Ankara, Turkey, for meetings with President Abdullah Gul. This is a very adventurous trip with many meet and greets. This will be his first tour of Europe as president during the campaign at a rally in Germany back in August of 2008. There were 200,000 people in Berlin that day and it is when the title rock star was officially given to President Obama. It will be interesting to see the return trip and if the shine still glitters or there is a dullness based on performance.
