A final holiday postcard comes to you from the outskirts of Prague, where Diana and I are staying at the same campground where the bicycling group resided two weeks ago.

The bicycling portion concluded last Sunday with a memorable 50-km ride in and around Vienna, a city with over 700 km of marked bicycle routes. The final mileage tally for the trip was around 500 km, or 320 miles. We omitted a portion of the Greenway owing to a recognition that while we were capable, it was simply too much work for something designed as vacation. This startling concession has become a new slogan: When the going gets tough, the tough take the the train.

Thoughts to all, and we will see you in a few days.
