There's some crazy-looking construction going on on the Crosstown - the road we sometimes take into downtown Tampa. They're building an overpass and it's kind of cool to see the giant partial pieces of road floating above us. Those slabs of cement and steel are STRONG to be held up by such relatively small support beams.
It seems that Tampa is in a constant state of construction, and honestly, that's fine with me. I welcome the growth. Now, if this sort of thing were to happen in San Antonio, Florida, my sleepy and small hometown, I would definitely freak. San Ann needs to remain frozen in time, just as it is, to maintain its small-town charm.
Do any of you feel that way about your hometown?
Downtown Tampa, from an admittedly ugly viewpoint - the Crosstown. I work in one of the skyscrapers behind the big one on the left.
Part II of our NYE festivities coming soon!
