Tampa on the weekend

Tampa is quite a funny city.  The name comes from the local Indian language and means lightning.  Tampa has the most lightning strikes in the world.  The funny thing is that no one lives in the city, as seen on the weekends when it's empty.

Banana Spiders

Hiking in Florida is quite a challenge with all the little creatures that are hanging around.  Often you have to hike with a stick in front of your face so you don't run into these guys.  They like to weave a web crossing a trail just at the hight of your face.  Don't think they are poisons, but will wake you up if you run into them.
