hail to the convoy

So last night we got about as close to the President of the United States as we probably ever will be. Our apartment in Prague faces out on the main road going to the airport, so last night at about 9pm we stood out on our balcony and watched a looooong convoy of police cars, limosines, and well, they looked like SUV's but they were probably tanks go by.

It was cool.

As you might have expected, security is intense out here. Just along our road, taxi service was suspended three hours before, all trash cans were removed, and there were yellow-vested police officers stationed at every corner. They even blocked out cell phone service as the convoy passed.

So when Vlad'a asked us this morning, "Did you see your president?" we just smiled and said yes.

"He probably wasn't in the cars," Vlad'a replied. "He probably took the subway."

Are the rumors true? Do little cowboys trail behind his entourage leaving only war and oil pipelines in its wake?

Oh Boot, so much to learn.

And Joel, it seems you haven't gotten much farther than what we all learned in junior high spanish - 'just smile and nod.'

Or is that the irony of it all?
