Starting with 19th of April, I spent almost twoo weeks in Florida. Arriving 2 days before the SIP Masterclass in Orlando held together with Olle E. Johansson allowed accommodation with the time zone. Also, we had the time to do the shoppings for the course.
First Sunday we headed to Cape Canaveral to visit the NASA Space center. Having my sister a researcher and PhD in Astro-Physics (blogging in Romanian about this at http://blogsolar.blogspot.com/), I have been pretty much in touch with this field. However, the center is impressive, movies about the history of astronautics and the trips in space, rockets and shuttles at real size, the assembly room, launch pads, a.s.o.
Monday to Friday was mostly about the course, with people from USA, Columbia, Peru and Canada, enjoying very much discussion about real world deployments and issues. During an evening, we had a quick tour at Universal Studio, another big attraction of Orlando.
Once course finished, without visiting the Disney World (next time…), I moved to Miami and spent 3 challenging days with friends, including one BBQ on the beach.
I left Florida for going to Bucharest for one and a half day before flying to Barcelona for another SIP Masterclass hosted by http://avanzada7.com/.
