Any real question I had about the economy being in a serious recession has been laid to rest. At the Animal Kingdom disney park yesterday, the place was wall-to-wall people spending scads of money. No recession here. Although it's also true that an awful large number of visitors here are foreign travelers. I heard lots of German, Russian, Norweigian, Japanese being spoken here, as well as Portugese. Very interestng.
This is actually a very pleasant park though, with wonderful landscaping, which is balm to my soul.
