Ever been stuck in traffic coming up Third Street and wished you could be riding in your own 20-car motorcade with nary a Muni bus in sight? That's how Russian prez Dmitry Medvedev came into town yesterday after landing at SFO (see SF Sentinel for photos of the arrival). He was headed to the Fairmont Hotel.

Medvedev is here to speak at Stanford University, take some meetings in Silicon Valley to lure some talent and investment to Russia, and meet with Twitter founders to, um, find out what all that BUZZ is about two years too late. [via SF Citizen - Photo via Lutherlowe/Twitpic]
