How to get from Cambridge to Prague

Google directions will tell you. Let me be brief:

  • Head northeast on River Street toward Green Street, 46 feet
  • Sharp left at Western Avenue, 0.7 miles
  • ... exit, toll road, ...
  • Turn right at Long Wharf, 0.1 miles
  • Swim accross the Atlantic Ocean, 3462 miles
  • Slight right at E05, 0.5 miles
  • ... toll road, Amiens, Paris, Pilsen ...
  • Turn left to stay on the Wenceslaus Square, 92 feet
As you can see, it's not hard to get there. Google estimates that the swimming will consume 30 days. This simple algorithm is the essence of what a German blogger calls Transatlanticism. :-)

The picture was taken in October 1998 and Hillary had a good justification for such fun in front of Václav Havel's residence. :-) Besides Transatlanticism, there also exists Transmesopotamism. Two brothers blogging from Baghdad were quoted in a speech by Bush: Iraq the Model. Congratulations.
