Prague was excellent. It was nicer than I thought it was going to be. No matter what your impression is about Prague, it is the place for "Pils" (the term taught to me by my brother's expatriated Czech friends) and the original Budweiser (Budvar). It is a great place for global convergence.

The city is a bit like Venice, a bit like Amsterdam, but mostly it is like Prague. The big joke is when you are in a restaurant and you ask for the... "Czech." Most folks are very capable with English downtown. There are casinos, museums, blue-light, all in downtown and a whole lot of history (including recent important history). I spent time in the National Museum (well worth every second). It also occurred to me that my meeting attendees list sounds a little like the beginning of a interesting joke. You know, "an Englishman, five Finns, a Dutchman, three Germans, a Frenchman, a Scot, two Danes and an token American walk into a Bar..." We had a great meeting. We are moving the world ahead. The prices were right too. I am sure we could have found trouble if we were looking for it just like every city in the US. At some point I am just going to have to realize that the US is a dangerous place.

Dead horse

Astronomical Clock

I am fortunate in many dimensions.

DJ and I did some backpacking on Fingerlakes trail and camped out near Hammondsport, NY. We also went to the Glenn Curtiss Aviation museum and the Penn Yan, NY fly-in breakfast. My aviation mentor and I took a spin in N733EB from Greene, NY to Cortland, NY. Fun of course, the weather was great. Flying from the right seat is a lot different. The Raymond plant didn't look like much overtime was going on. At least they seem to have fixed the roof that leaked the whole 10 years I worked there.

No question, a lot is going on.
