August 20th - St Stephen's Day

Steven and I are doing very well. We are enjoying the summer. We have both been busy with work and life. Sorry for no regular posts...

Yesterday started the festivities for Saint Stephens Day. Today (Thursday) and tomorrow are National holidays. Everything is closed...including bridges! But there is so much to do! There are programs going on until Sunday night. Dancing, folk arts, the Red Bull plane races under the bridge!, and much more!

Yesterday I accidentally came across the beginning of the races..or maybe they were just practicing. Anyway, it was remarkable! I called my dad (a HUGE plane lover!) from the water and told him he must come visit next year. These planes fly between the water and the bridge! Click here to check out this cool video.

Tonight we are going to two parties at two different hotels on the water. Fireworks and celebrations guaranteed! Will post photos tomorrow!
