7 mile bridge in True Lies

Rumor says that's how the bridge has that breach there, yah, the jet bombed it up. Believe it or not, the bridge is so famous partly owe to the movie, at least I know the bridge because of the movie, and made it a must-not-miss-site when I visited Key West. Now it's open to walking tourists, so you can simply park your vehicle at the intersection of the old and new 7 mile bridges, and walk to the "bombed one". The view is absolutely astonishing!

2010 US Census

I'm not paid to promote this, just feel excited to see Chinese in US government official letter. Probably Koreans will feel more excited than I am...

Spring Break II - Tampa

When it's spring break, you would expect an influx of students from northern states to Florida, it's either Miami beach, or Disney World in Orlando, or the southernmost point in Key West. So when you plan your trip during that period, try avoid going to those hot students spots, because you know, traffic would be bad, and students would be everywhere. So we decided we go to Dali Museum, a place students definitely would not consider for spring break. This is taken outside Dali Museum.
We got to Clearwater beach at 4pm, hardly found a parking lot. The sand is so white, but the water stinks. West Palm Beach is way better.

Spring Break I - Savannah

It's a 4 hours' drive from Gainesville FL to Savannah GA, a great place senior people to live. There is this Savannah College of Art and Design, it has buildings all over the town, and students there have quite different tastes in appearance, unlike the students I see at UF, whose styles are more or less the same. This is the famous Forsyth Park Fountain.

ISOM Workshop

It's annual workshop hosted by ISOM department, which means free food at Hilton hotel as well as work presentations from big names in IS/OM area. Well, I enjoyed it, especially when I got this little Gator clip. It comes with my name tag and conference folder, so basically my name tag is clipped to the folder by this little gator. It's very small and light. I like it, I would love it if it's made of gold.
