Wilmington, Delaware

My biological clock was upside-down for the past 1 week. Coffee is always been my best fren, but I just felt that I can't live without coffee during the jetlag period.

Wilmington is located at Delaware state. It is a tax-free state. Unlike other states, there is certain sales tax apply to your purchase. Unfortunately I can't find any big outlet in Wilmington city, but luckily shipping is not my main target :P I'm hoping for visiting the state parks and gardens, if it come with any outdoor activities that would be excellent! It's Fall, but the leaves are still green, perhaps they turn yellow or red next few weeks.

I was totally enough for bugers/subs for the first few days, then I look for alternative like rice and pasta. Next weel onwards expect more rice to come cos my colleague who arrived today just brought a microwave dish for rice cooking :) There is no kitchen in my hotel room, but just a microwave, well I guess it is better than nothing.

I can run around my hotel area, the weather is cooling, about 17 degree celsius in the evening. So I must run with my jacket, and cover my ears if possible. The sun set before 7pm, so just have to make sure I back to hotel before dark. There is a trail that link to the Brandywine State Park, I should have a try sometime this week or next :)

Ok, enjoy the photos of Wilmington Downtown here.. Alico, that's where I work. Check for Philadelphia sight seeing photos later!

There should be few Chinese restaurants in Wilmington. Just search around and you can find it.
The park behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art is a great place. Running along the Kelly Drive is nice. Or, you can go for kayaking along the Schuylkill River.
