Deerfield - Walk Around - 30th Mar 08

It was dark last night so I could not capture the surroundings. I spent some time after breakfast to explore and take some pictures. It is freezing out there but I still decided not to let the day wasted.

Here is the hotel.


The hotel suite. Cool isn't it? I love cottage-style houses.


You can find acorn trees everywhere. Look, I found one acorn.


My office is right at the end of this row of buildings.


Look! A wild geese in the business park. It flew away later with a "quack!", "quack!", ... sound


Water ducks? I like the green head and orange feet they have.


The long winding road into the business park.

Deerfield - Arrival - 29th Mar 08

I am on a business trip to Deerfield, Illinois. I finally arrived at Marriott Residence Inn in the middle of the night after a long 24 hours of flight.

It is exciting because I can see piles of snow everywhere. It is cold here.
