When I left Orlando, it was 70 degrees and the sun was shining. Upon my return to Indianapolis it was the usual cold with "really cold" in the forecast. Honestly, I don't care either way. I actually enjoy the cold weather and the brisk air filling my nostrils as I exited the plane made me feel good--or maybe that was the exhaust fumes from the jet engines.
Here are some Random Central Florida Thoughts:
- People drive pretty slow down there. I think it has something to do with the fact that the average age is 98. But seriously, I liked the fact that I wasn't the one getting passed all the time.
- There's a sign at the Northwest Airlines desk that says "Toy Weapons Must Be Checked In" or something like that. I would have snapped a picture, but my camera was in my suitcase and already checked in. I'm not sure what to make of this strange requirement and I didn't bother asking what I'm supposed to do with my "Real Weapons"--which was probably a good idea.
- If you are exhibiting at a trade show that hands out free booze on the show floor, you'll see many more people at your booth than when you're a trade show that does not hand out free booze at the trade show. It's science.
- If you're ever in Orlando, go to the Winter Park area and eat at a Turkish restaurant called Bosphorous--yummy.
