You're not in Kansas -- No, not THAT Albany

Okay, spending most of two days in Lawrence makes the saying "blue dot in a red state" make sense.  When wandering through one of this prototypical college towns in America, the feel is more like Berkeley and Ithaca than it is like towns in the rest of Kansas.  A couple of times, following gaggles of students in jeans and T-shirts along the sidewalk, I had terrible bouts of deja vous, or was it a pharmaceutical flashback?

After having spent 15 years working in Albany, NY, I didn't know what I would expect in Albany, GA.  Trip proved interesting and rewarding.  Both cities have a river and near proximity to pristine country-side -- that's pretty much where the similarities end.  The chambers in both towns actually share a lot: programming, priorities, volunteer engagement level, CEOs with New England roots, talented teams and "interesting" relationships with elected officials.  Thanks for the hospitality Catherine and Wendy!
