Have been waiting around all day and finally got a glimpse of Qeen Elizabeth at the Capitol here in Richmond, Virginia. Most of the streets where closed off (security issues) and thousands of people are arriving here for the car racing that will be taking place tomorrow. Thousands turned out to welcome her. She had to climb about 40 steps up to the Capitol, she made it without gaspng for breath---she did better than I did. It felt like part of my beloved England came to visit me---made me feel proud.
