We visited to Wet and Wild in Orlando which was a good laugh. Strutty screamed like a girl on every slide. I plucked up the courage to go on Bomb Bay, which is a close to 90 degree vertical slide. You stand in a rocket shaped compartment and when the operator presses a button the floor disappers from beneath you. Slightly embarrasing that the 8 year olds in front of me didn't seem scared at all. We heard on the news that the tropical storm might hit Orlando at 4 am. It rained heavily and there were some winds at this time but nothing major. Looks like some parts of Florida have flooded though. We were planning to go to Daytona Beach tonday but it was being hit by 20-30mph winds so we headed to Tampa instead which is fine although not sunny. Tampa is somewhat rundown, a lot of warehouses and offices. However there is a small district called Ybor City which is nice and full of bars. Had a look around earlier and plan to go out tonight. However literally on the edges of the part which has obviously been revistalised are run down and shut down buildings which are an obvious hang out for the homeless. Speaking of which the huge gap between rich and poor really seems to be empahised here in the USA. When we went out to the Meat Packing district in New York, limos were everywhere. However on the subway on the way back to the hostel a homeless man boarded the train and told us he had aids and had had his trainers stolen. It is a sad world but better not to dwell on depressing things I can't change I suppose. We plan to go to Bucsh Gradens tomorrow, weather permitting, which should be excellent. Not sure where we are headed after that, whereever the tropical storm avoids I guess. Really looking forward to leaving Florida now though. It seems like we have been here to long without actually starting to properly travel and see what the USA has to offer. We need to start staying in hostels again, feels like selling out staying in motels/hotels like we have been since Miami even if they are cheap. Taking a Greyhound should be an interesting experience. Will porbably load some pictures on to my blog either tonight or tomorrow morning.
