Cinderella Castle at Dusk

Orlando was very nice.  Great vacation from winter.  The Kauffman Foundation put us up at Disney's Coronado Springs.  Fri. we went to Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa beach and then there was a reception for the 15 Kauffman Dissertation Award winners.  It's awarded to the best dissertation proposals in the area of entrepreneurship.  The next day we had a breakfast meeting with Toby Stuart, prof. of my entrep. class at HBS, then a meeting where previous winners talked about their research, then a fancy lunch in front of the USASBE conference attendees where we were recognized for winning the award.  Then we had the rest of the day off so we went to the big pool at the Coronado springs and just relaxed, swam and I went on the water slide there.  In the evening we had dinner in Downtown Disney and went to another Disney hotel overlooking the Magic Kingdom for dessert.  Sunday we got one final swim at the hotel pool in.  The weather was warm and sunny the whole time, great break from Boston!
