Sochi Art Museum

Sochi, Russia

10:51 A.M. (Local)

MRS. BUSH: President Bush and I have loved having this chance to be in Sochi. I got to see the Paralympics, the Russian Paralympics team this morning. I wished them good luck in Beijing. So we're very excited to have this opportunity to be in this beautiful Russian city.

And this is probably the last time we'll come to Russia to visit President Putin before President Bush and President Putin are no longer Presidents. So I want to thank President Putin for inviting us to Sochi, for giving us this chance to see this beautiful Russian city.

And now to be at the beautiful art museum, this is a thrill, too. So I want to thank everybody here in Sochi for your hospitality. Thanks a lot.
