The Israeli president begins his first day of a state visit to Spain, we’re in the British capital for London Fashion Week, and celebrations for George Washington’s birthday are underway at Mount Vernon, Va.

In Zermatt, Switzerland, the Google Street View snow mobile begins to document the ski resort against a backdrop of the famed Matterhorn; the sun sets over Havana’s El Malecon esplanade; and a giant panda, part of a pair traveling to Japan from their home in China, peers out of her enclosure at Shanghai airport, en route to Tokyo.
