Neighborhood Ball

After a rocky start to the day, the Neighborhood ball set it right, exceeding all expectations. Teresa and I staked out a place right near the main stage and were actually standing in a very narrow space between Beyonce and the President, when Beyonce sang for their first dance. By the time we got to Shakira, Alicia Keys, and then Sting with Stevie Wonder, we were actually in the front row, about 15 feet from the performers. I will post more photos and videos later, but for now, here are a few...

Below: Anton Konev, Andrea, Corey Ellis and me.
