Where in the world I am

Did you guess Tampa? Very good! I've never been on this side of the state before. It's pretty sunny. As usual these days, I am impaired electronically, so this will be brief. We are preparing today to attend Gasparilla. We got into town yesterday and have been warned three times--an older lady at the Ybor City visitors' center, a hip girl at the coffee shop, and an art museum guard--that it is a drunken mess and nothing a 5yo will enjoy. But the 5yo has heard that it's a pirate festival so we're going to give it a try anyway. Wish us luck!
