A sampling of things that are going on and around.

Eastern Road tour, Check

So we arrived home yesterday from our petit vacances in Eastern Europe.  Pretty awesome tour.  I’ll probably do city by city posts later on (when I have my photos in some semblance of organization), but for now, a few random impressions:

  • Loved Berlin, it was beautiful and full of (recent) history.
  • World War II, followed by 40 years Communism for Poland, Hungary, and the areas now the countries of Czech Republic and Slovakia was a pretty raw deal.
  • Auschwitz was more terrible to visit than I had imagined, but at the same time one of the best stops on the trip. Everyone should go there at least once.
  • Poland has beautiful countryside and beautiful cities also (pictures will be coming soon).
  • Vienna was really gorgeous but the people looked normal to me. (I had read that Vienna was full of well-dressed snobs). Maybe I didn’t find the affluent area of the city when we visited. 😉
