Back to the Daily Grind

Ok, the pictures aren't quite ready yet. But here are some things I learned during my trip:

1. Sitting 10 feet from the grave of Johann Sebastian Bach is the most moving experience ever. I just sat there for about 20 minutes, in total speechless awe.

2. In German, the word for "town hall" is rathaus. How cool is that?

3. London is a friggin expensive city. I can't remember how many times I caught myself saying things like, "I can't wait until we get home to New York, where everything is cheaper."

4. Everyone said the Guinness tastes better in England, close to the source. But I found it disappointingly bitter in London.

5. If you're ever in Prague, don't stay at this hotel. It looks good online, but it is a total shithole. The rooms are dingy and frightening. The towels are threadbare, the bathrooms are dirty. The food is icky. And the website doesn't tell you there's a strip club in the lobby. We switched hotels after one night.

6. It was a theater bonanza. In Prague, we got to see a puppet production of Don Giovanni. Loads of fun. AND in London, The Mousetrap by Agatha Christie.

7. Nobody east of the Prime Meridian seems to eat fresh vegetables. When visiting, plan your poop schedule accordingly.

And now, it's back to work. Ugh!!
