I should be working on essays. I declined my invitation to UVA (Darden) and the half tuition scholarship that came along with it. I decided that I wanted to be on the west coast and Wharton still hadnt contacted me about moving from off the waitlist. So now I am doing everything in my power to apply for Berkeley scholarships. The cool thing is that scholarship I am now applying to is from the Power Bar founders. I think my riding closely parallels the same kinds of struggles these people enjoyed throughout their running lives and business careers. I just hope that I strike a cord with them--there are 3 full tuition scholarships up for grabs here!
Anyway, I wanted to give you a glimpse of my trip. This pic of the mountains at St. Anton, Austria was taken about an hour before the avalanche. As you can see, it snowed at least 10-12 inches of new fresh snow the day before and this day was absolutely epic. I want my mom to note this is the same ski jacket I received as a bday gift for my 18th bday in Alaska!
This pic is of the F&G building in Prague (Praha). Amazing design, somehow, these architects manage to meld into the rest of the baroque and Gothic buildings that dominate the city-scape. More on this later.
This is the view from just beneath the Prague Castle cathedral. I love gargoyles and this cathedral had hundreds. (again, more to come)
Finally, here is a pic that Chris took of me waiting for another late train. I have always claimed that a man who cant buck his own luggage isnt worth much.
Once I have a better handle on these next four essays, there will be many more posted pics and stories, including the full details of the avalanche and helo rescue.
