Edit Blog Post

So we've been chilling (both literally in figuratively) in the Alps this past week. The actual place is St. Johann im Pongau, but they don't have the location on this blog, so I picked one close by.
We've been staying in a nice hotel where, once again, we don't quite fit in, but everyone's been real nice and we've met a couple cool people (mostly much older than us). The view from our hotel room is incredible, with mist-shrouded mountains every morning that burn off by afternoon to show the snow-capped peaks beneath them. The other day we took a trip with this guy we met at the hotel (a bit of a Dead-head, but a real nice guy). He drove us out to the Liechtensteinklamm, which is a gorge cut straight through one of the mountains nearby. They have a pathway set up that takes you up alongside the gorge, sometimes over the water, and sometimes through long, dimly-lit tunnels, all the way up to a waterfall at the head of the gorge. It was stunning, but I'm afraid the pictures I'm posting really won't be able to capture the true beauty of the place.
Other than that, we've just
been hanging out around the pool, finally taking some time to get work done on my thesis, and watching the presidential campaign. I'm going to refrain from injecting my political views into this blog, but all I can say is that they're both pissing me off from time to time (one more so than the other).
I hope all's well at home,
