Kentucky in Spring

Lexington - Having grown up within view of the Rocky Mountains, Kentucky’s landscape is very intriguing to me. A great place to get a feel for the flat, smooth, lineal Kentucky horizon is from the 18th floor of the Patterson Tower on the University of Kentucky campus. I’m in Lexington for the Kentucky Foreign Language Conference (KFLC); it is the largest language conference in the USA. There are people from all over the country here to speak, listen, discuss, and improve. A colleague from the U and I were scheduled to present this morning. We were the first presenters for the day and so we arrive early to get set up. We were all ready to go at 9:00AM when we thought our presentation started, but there was a little problem… No one was there! We started wondering if we were in the wrong place, where the moderator was, where the other presenters were, and if we should just go ahead without anyone. Then, around 9:15 people started showing up and we found out that the session actually started at 9:30. The presentation went well and it ended up being well attended. Lexington is beautiful in springtime here are three pictures of tulips on the UK campus.
