Great location between 2 huge parks
The second leg of our quest-trek during summer 2015 focuses on teaching at Anglo-American University i(AAU) n Prague, Czech Republic and continuing our Camino training schedule. This is the 8th year we have come to Prague to teach at AAU, and the 14th time we have visited this beautiful city. Every time we come we discover something new, and we expect the same this year. We have rented a terrific apartment about a 20 minute walk from campus (or 2-stop tram ride for those rainy days) that is conveniently located between 2 huge parks. This makes for easy early pre-breakfast training walks as we have enjoyed exploring these lovely parks along with the other areas around Prague with which we are already familiar. AAU has recently moved into a newly restored castle built originally in the 1600s, renovated in the 1700s, and now restored to create one of the most beautiful teaching settings one will find anywhere in the world. The contrast between the beautiful crystal chandeliers and marble statues lining the wide wooden winding staircases and the technology in place (like fingerprint scan recognition to enter the building) is quite dramatic. Our classes are going well; Ray has 27 students in his leadership course and I have 19 students in my Global Health Management course. The student's in Rays class represent 10 nationalities and who knows how many spoken languages. The language proficiency of European students never cease to impress us! I have a combination of graduate students from Masters in International Business and Law and Public Policy programs along with 6 undergrads (3 students from Kosovo and 3 business majors from the University of South Carolina studying in Prague this summer through an educational exchange program. Check out our apartment, school and trek-training in the photos below.

Love the photos of Prague
AAU upgrade is substantial. Glad your courses are going well. My only regret is that I'm not able to join you for this leg of your QuestTrek. Press on with your training. You guys rock! Buen Camino!
