September 11, 2016 - Fort Lauderdale Run and Walk


 
September 11 – not only an American day of grief. On September 11, 2001 also many foreign business people and employees of the located companies in the Twin Towers died because these two towers were a business center in Manhattan. Many international banks and companies had offices there.

Like every year there was again a memorial event at the ground zero site with all important dignitaries of politics and business. Even when the wounds of that horrible event slowly heal, a scare will stay forever.

These memorial events not only take place in New York but also in Fort Lauderdale. One of these memorial events was the 5 K Walk and Run in the downtown area. Many participants came out early in the morning to see the sun arise and run for a good cause.

For your house hunt you need some datails before you start serching on the internet


In American homes, you will rarely find closets that are standing at the wall as it is common in many countries. The cupboards for clothes and linens are built into the interior walls when the house is constructed. These closets are closed with wood or metal folding doors. Mirrored doors are also available, and you can easily change them to whatever you like best. Such a solution is space-saving and comfortable.

If there is enough space in the house, these cabinets are accessible as a separate room and offer plenty of space for individual design ideas on the inside, such as shelving, hanging rails, and drawers.

Furthermore, properties are often sold with functional kitchen and laundry appliances. A basically equipped kitchen has a refrigerator and a stove. An upgraded kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, and garbage disposal. If you are lucky, your new dream home will include a washer and dryer too, because drying of laundry outside is not common.

In addition to the above-mentioned appliances, each property in Florida has a hot water heater and an airconditioning system as a standard feature.

How to determine where to reside in Florida

If you are an adventurous person, for example, real estate locations south of Fort Lauderdale, toward Miami and Key West, might be right for you. In this area is the main center of tourism in southern Florida, and there are constant parties and events. The two major international airports in the region are Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and they are excellent starting points for your discovery trip to Florida.

Both cities also have large cruise ports, from which the cruise ships start their journeys into the Caribbean. In Fort Lauderdale, the airport and cruise port are within a one-mile radius.

Key West, the southernmost point of the continental United States, is another tourist attraction and is easily accessible by car or boat from Miami and Fort Lauderdale.

Are you interested in owning a condo in Jamaica?

After the general overview about Jamaica, you know what to expect. Maybe you get the impression that Jamaica is only a tropical vacation spot. However, that is only one side of the coin.

This country has more benefits to offer than sun, water, beaches, and gorgeous mountains and countryside.

The potential of this country is not only in the tourism sector and its related businesses. Especially in the last years, Jamaica has worked very hard to better its hard economic situation and establish new income sources for its citizens. The positive impact of these measures are already noticeable; however, there is still much to do ahead, and the Jamaicans are determined to move forward on this positive path.

This is only a small insight into the cultural customs in Jamaica. Much more to this topic you will find in my book

The first Jamaican Millionaire lived large

This historical building is located in Kingston at the Hope Road and offers you a glimpse into the British colonial time.

It was built in 1891 for the first black millionaire of Jamaica—Georg Stiebel. He was a child of a black housekeeper and a German-Jewish merchant and made his money with his investment in gold mining in South America. With the gains from his investments, he bought fifty-one acres of land and built his home. This home was only one of his ninety-nine properties on the island.

The estate is today only eleven acres in the heart of Kingston. However, it is one of the important national monuments and a tourist attraction where you can enjoy the tropic life in the shade of the big canopies of trees.

Appleton Rum Plantation - a place to visit on your tour

One of the best-known plantations in Jamaica is the Appleton Estate. This plantation is located on the southern border of the cockpit country in Nassau Valley.

This estate is the oldest sugar plantation and distillery in Jamaica. It produces sugar and rum and has so since 1749. To get a firsthand impression about the sugar cultivation and rum distillery, you can book a bus tour to the estate.

On this tour you will not only see the manufacturing process, you also have the opportunity to taste the different sorts of rum and liquors. You can even try the best rum of the distillery—the fifty-year-old barrel-aged Appleton Estate rum. In case you prefer a sweet liqueur the rum with pineapple taste may be a nice alternative. However, you can try as much as you want, and if you are lucky, you will get a lunch too.

What is the right culture touch in Jamaica?

When you are in Jamaica, please keep in mind that you are a guest in a foreign country and that the Jamaican population has a different cultural background and experience than you do. The best way to make friends and feel comfortable is to observe and adapt your personal behavior during your stay on the island.

Like every other population, the Jamaicans are proud of their country, their accomplishments, and their flag; therefore, show respect to the flag. Do not use the flag in an inappropriate or disrespectful manner, because it is a symbol of the country and the people.

The country motto and the coat of arms also show the pride and the diversity of the Jamaican people.
