I'm HOME!!

The rest of the Prague trip was a blast!!  Here is another web album of pictures and comments on each to show what we did.... and man we did a lot!  Jewish area, Castle, Cathedral, a jazz boat ride, Communist Museum, a little shopping, and more!
My favorite was the Pinkas Synagogue.... once you get to the pictures, make sure you read the comments if you want to know what you are looking at!!
The last day, Sunday, we all were super tired by 4pm and so we went home, packed and relaxed.  It had been nothing but GO GO GO this trip and our feet couldn't take it anymore.
The next day Rosie and I flew to New York for the night, and Hans-Eric went back to Sweden.
New York was great, except that it was 100 degrees!! HOLY HOT!!  We got pedicures and then just went home and slept!  We stayed at a friends place in Manhattan.  Thanks Courtney!!

Up at 4 am, I caught my 5 1/2 hour flight to Seattle, then a 3 hour lay over, then a flight to Juneau.  Linda Hull was on my flight and spoiled me rotten.  I got wine, a whole bottle of water, and snacks!! SO NICE!!  But when I got to Juneau, Skagway was on weather hold!!  Oh geez... i couldn't get out of Skagway and now I can't get back in.  Fortunately I got the last fast ferry ticket back, which is really a whale watching tour.  I took a taxi to the glacier, go on the 45 minute bus out to the dock and then a 2 1/2 hour boat ride home.  I was soooooooooo exhausted, 21 hours of traveling!  BUT IT WAS WORTH IT!!
I am one lucky girl to be able to leave work for 2 weeks in the middle of the season and go see the world.  My employees did a great job... the store looked great, and things got done... we were even up in sales for the month of June! YEAH!!
