In fact thats not quite true because I arrived here last night to a chaotic Miami Airport, think opening day of Heathrow Terminal 5 and you would be somewhere close! Anyway one shuttle bus ride later, picked up the hire car (Mustang convertible) well when in Rome as they say… and headed off up route 95 North for Fort Lauderdale and the Hyatt Pier 66 where I stood on the balcony and drank in the scenery. You think the boats are large in the South of France? Well think again. Because here, very obviously size does matter.
Lets take breakfast for example, The buffet scared me off, just so vast, so I took the frittata (sort of omlette thingy) it was enough to feed a family of four and then headed off to see the guys at team USA.
The boys are obviously enjoying themselves, both looking tanned and relaxed and have embraced their new US lifestyle wholeheartedly. The office is perfectly placed right in the centre of Las Olas business hub. Dan was celebrating having just booked 4 aircraft for a trip for a new client, and the even better news according to the boys was that Wednesday is cookie day in our office block, just wait till you see the size of them they said.
So all in all a great first day in Florida and apparently its Ladies night tonight….free Champagne for me, which hands down beats the cookies!
