In the last two days, I’ve been in Prague, London and New York City. Not something you do often. On August 8th, on our last day in the Czech Republic, I spent an amazing day in city of Prague. I was particularly interested in sites related to Jan Hus. I’ve been a bit infatuated with his story and the Reformation in the Czech lands in the 14-15 centuries for some time. It was so cool to see Bethlehem Chapel where Hus preached for 3 years over 3000 sermons. The Old Town Sq was also quite amazing. It is the most beautiful city in central Europe.
On August 9th, I flew standby between from Prague to Chicago through London. However, given the crowded flight to Chicago, it made the most sense to come home through NYC. Early afternoon weather put a wrench in my plan and forced the cancellation of a couple of afternoon flights. I was stuck in NYC. So, I stay in Manhattan last night. It just so happened that the Yankees were home. I am a HUGE NY Yankees fan as some of you know and I took the opportunity to visit the New Yankee Stadium. I’d never been to the old one either. What a blast!
I’m still en route to Chicago today, but the weather is beautiful today in NYC so I should be able to get home.
