Stieg in Mahattan

That's Manhattan, NY and not Manhattan, Kansas, in case you were confused. Traveling with the seminary Kantorei, they sang and I preached last night at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Bayside. Tonight we go to Greenwich, Connecticut which is only about 25 miles away. This meant that both yesterday and today, we had time to explore NYC.

In the past two days, I got to see the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, St. Patrick's cathedral, etc. I did so much walking around because the weather has been unseasonably warm and sunny. So my feet are dog tired. I could have seen more - museums and such - but I'm not that kind of traveler.

I like to go to see touristy things, including museums, when I travel but I can't stand trying to cram everything in at once. I like to take my time and maybe only do a few things at a time. That's enough for me. Especially if the trip is supposed to be a vacation, which this isn't.

Certainly, there is a fair bit of free time during the days of choir tour. Often, the choir would be trapped on a bus all day going from one location to the next. But since these New England stops are so near each other, transit time is relatively short. But so far, in my capacity as Admission Director, I have been able to touch base with 5 or 6 prospective students.

Hi Pastor,
Glad to meet you again and have you and the the Kantorei at Redeemer on Tuesday night. Am looking forward to hearing how the bat thing turns out.

BTW -- Since "Burg" = fort[ress], and you are at the Fort, how about just dropping the last h and calling your blog "Burr in the Burg"?

I think anonymous had a great idea re your blog's title. I know seminarians who refer to the seminary and the city as 'the fort'.
As to your sojourn to New York: they say, if you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere.

I love "Burr in the Burg." That is a great idea. In fact, I plan on now referring to our lovely city as "the Burg." I can't believe I never thought of it before.
