Miami

No photos to speak of here, as I actually came for a conference at the fabulous Hilton Fontainbleu resort. Chance to (once again) escape the hostel scene and chill in a four star hotel.

Unfortunately the Yanks seem to go a bit overboard when it comes to work, with seminars starting at 8am, a time when I might normally be contemplating rolling out of bed and going to work. Won't bother detailing any of the conference as far too dull...

Was supposed to spend a day doing an everglades tour, but cancelled this as found an 'English' pub (Churchills) that was showing the Liverpool v Chelsea Cup final at 9am US time.

This establishment was in what appearred to be Miami's ghettos district. Putting any worries aside, proceeded to tuck into a full English breakfast in an establishment run by a lovable English rogue (i.e a fat skinhead), who decided to show porn on the big screen as a build up to the game... Unfortunately the game didn't go to plan, and the 2 Chelsea fans in the bar were fairly muted in their celebrations given the 40 odd Liverpool fans present...to cap off a fine day, England lost to Ireland in the rugby game that was being shown at the same time on the other side of the bar.

Right, time to forget work, off to Melbourne for the Formula 1 Grand Prix....
