WELCOME TO PAUL TOWNEND'S HOMEPAGE
Tampa in November 2006

Almost exactly a year after I being sent to Orlando for a conference, I found myself having to return to Florida for another work event - this time, in Tampa. I didn't get to see a whole lot of Tampa, as I was mostly working inside the Convention Center, but managed to have a walk around the immediate vicinity and get some reasonably photos.

After my time in Tampa, I actually took an Amtrack train over to Orlando, and had another few days there (re-visiting the same places I had been a year before, such as Disney Epcot and Universal studios, and evening seeing a rocket launch. But that is another story. This album contains a limited collection of sunny photos of downtown Tampa.
