Presidents Obama and Bush will meet Tuesday at a wreath laying ceremony in Tanzania. Via the pool report:

Air Force One arrived in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania at 2:39 pm local time. POTUS and family are expected to be greeted at the bottom of the steps with an arrival ceremony. Your pooler will send details of the arrival ceremony in a separate email.

There was also a gaggle. See below.

Gaggle:

There was an extensive staff gaggle on board that touched on several topics. You should have a transcript by now, so your pooler will refrain from a full transcription. But I will provide some highlights below.

Jay Carney also announced that George W. Bush will join President Obama at the wreath-laying event Tuesday morning at the site of the embassy bombings. He did not provide many details, but said he did not expect the two presidents to make any remarks at the event.
