Well Newport has the "honour" of hosting the NATO Summit this time round on September 4th & 5th.
It takes place at the Celtic Manor Resort Hotel which is about 20mins walk from my house.
Apparently, it will be the biggest event ever in the UK and 9,500 police officers are here & in Cardiff to sort out security.
That doesn't include the ones we don't see!
A Peace camp has been set up in town and a couple of demos are planned, the 1st one being tomorrow.
I know when the Summit was held in Chicago & Strasbourg there was a lot of trouble, but we shall see if Newport suffers the same fate.
My main focus is to photograph police vehicles from other parts of the UK as I think I will be asking for TROUBLE if I try and sneak up close to photograph anyone important.
Barack Obama will be in town together with every major leader from around the world.
Interesting few days to come.

I got stopped by a van load of police officers yesterday as I was walking to work.
I had taken a photo of their van.
They were very polite etc and kept me waiting for about 10 minutes whilst they checked me out on the computer.
I wasn't searched, but was told the large lens on my camera does and will attract their attention.
