Good Monday Morning!! Back in the USA and with my early morning CNN and ESPN friends. It looks like Libya has been taken to a new level and the Phils-Tigers still are on track to meet in the World Series.
I have heard from many of my travelling band who departed and returned safely. Mike – you made it to the airport by 4:30AM!! – thanks for your note. I know that Kristen C., Kristen R., Spencer and Will made it to their KLM flight to Amsterdam as I intersected with them at the airport. Dana – let us know about the playoffs. Paul, when are we sailing the Vltava? The EMBA’s IFS loss was truly our gain.
You guys who went to Nice — is it nice? And those who czeched out more of the country beyond Prague as well as those to Bratislava, Vienna, Moscow, and other cities of destination - be safe. And call your Moms, Dads and significant others!! I already saw Jake and called Adam and my Mom (who again thanks all for singing Happy Birthday last Tuesday). Any good stories of travelling home? I do regarding a well-known seatmate on my flight from Copenhagen to NY.
So — as the week played like Dvorak’s #9 in E-minor, Dekuji Mnohokrat to many –
> Dejuki — Kathleen Fitgerald, the IFS worked terrifically on all levels.
> Dekuji — Sal Lenzo, this Prague Blague was excellent. We know there were readers as there were a number of email comments on what was written.
> Dekuji — Shannon Wilde, our on-ground coordinator in Prague. Nothing fell through the cracks
> and mostly, Dekuji Mnohokrat to….
Ali and Brian and Chris and Christina and Dana and Dasha and David and Elise and Htun and Jen and Kim and Kristin C. and Kristin R. and Kurt and Mike and Paul and Sarah and Sharon and Spencer and Will…… You guys were great ambassadors and are totally cool – don’t change. Note – not so “cool” as for me to waive the final due on August 31st.
Prague itself was magnificent. You have seen many pictures of it – it’s much more beautiful live – especially if you leave your ethnocentrism at home. Book a trip – book two!!
What else?? A lot more, but I will stop. Houston and Baltimore, it’s good to be home. This is IFS-Apollo 795/796 signing off.
