Freezing in Orlando

So much for the thought of warming up in Florida. I am attending Educause in Orlando, FL, and they seem to over-air condition everywhere. I am taking a seminar on Enterprise Architecture and I'm glad I brought a jacket. Others are suggesting bringing fuzzy slippers and blankets from the rooms. Even outside, it is in the low 60's. Last night, after arriving late, we went to a Greek restaurant with outdoor seating and by the end of dinner, it was getting pretty chili. There is an upside-down building just across the street from the hotel and I found this image on Google. Couldn't get a good picture on my cell phone. I'm not sure what it really is though someone said that they thought it was a restaurant.

  1. I just happened across your photo, purely by accident. I have seen photos of this building before and finally got curious enough to search for it. I live at Sanibel Island, FL, so I think I need to go check it out. :-)

    The Orlando Wonder Works was built in 1998 to look like an upside-down building, complete with inverted palm trees. The story goes that a top-secret laboratory, located in the Bermuda Triangle, was carried by a tornado to this spot. It was built to appear to have landed on a 1930s brick warehouse. Wonder Works' interactive exhibits combine science with thrills and entertainment. The inside of the building is built to look upside-down as well. In 2006, this second location was built in Pigeon Forge.

    The Wonder Works website, if you want to take a peek. :-)
