Miami Beach

Last week, we went to Miami Beach, Florida. I haven’t had time to write much about anything lately, but the warm weather is worth writing about. Winter in Connecticut was tough this year. It is long every year, but this year felt worse. It was nice to head south where the sun is a lot warmer in March. The main Miami event was a conference for global business leaders. Both Debbie and I were involved with the event, which attracted people from 72 countries. We got to take the pulse of the world economy just by riding in elevators and chatting up friends from Morocco, Australia, Bahrain, Mexico, Canada, Egypt, South Africa, and beyond. Β

We were based at the Fontainebleau Hotel, which has an amazing history. It has been substantially renovated and was a really great venue for a large gathering. The hotel has one of the best lobbies that I have ever been in. The location was fabulous and we had a chance to explore Miami Beach on foot. We ran the boardwalk every morning. I also swam in the Atlantic Ocean, both in the early morning after sunrise and in the evening before sunset.Β
