Austin 一日游

周末,有朋自远方来,被要求做地主之谊,小品一下Austin的风情。怎奈毕竟是腊月时节,天气忽热忽冷,不是Austin的最佳旅游时节。考虑一晚,拟出一道方子,一天下来,朋友和小朋友都还满意。现在把方子贴出来,有其他带小朋友的家长来Austin, 也可以照方抓药。

9:30am 相聚于旅馆。

10:00am Texas State Capitol
112 E 11th St, Austin, TX
(512) 305-8400

建筑颇有气势,有人说有小白宫之像。妙的是可以随意免费到里面参观,即使周日也开门。赞一下。当车游Austin Downtown中心之后,这是一个歇脚的好地方。如果天气好的话,前面的草坪也是小孩子撒欢的宝地。

Governor’s Mansion‎
1010 Colorado St, Austin, TX‎
(512) 463-5516‎
(10st, 11st, Lavacas St)

这个原先是可以参观的,白白净净的南部庄园建筑,可惜08年中一把火给熏黑了,没钱修缮,所以一直关着。由此可见民主社会州政府市政府也不容易,兜里没什么闲钱啊。所以可以开车兜一下,对比我们乡镇政府也能修山寨白宫的事实,批判一下老美资本主义的“窘迫”模样。

Univ of TX Austin
The Lyndon Baines Johnson Library & Museum
2313 Red River Street, Austin, TX 78705
512-7221-0200
9am-5pm

有时间,UT Austin可以开车校园里兜兜,还有个总统图书馆可以看看,周末也开门。

上午,就集中在Austin城中政治经济文化中心这一块儿了。

中午Lunch: Oasis on Lake Travis
6550 Comanche Trail, Austin, TX 78732
(512) 266-2442
(around 620, best view for Lake Travis)

以著名的湖光山色配以典型的Tex-Mex, 如有闲情还可以来上一杯Margarita。其实如果天色好,这里可以作为晚餐看落日的好地脚。

下午:1:00 pm

Mount Bonnell
Mt Bonnell Rd

吃饱喝足,正好适合运动一下,城中小山Mt Bonnell 是个好去处,老幼皆宜,俯瞰河景豪宅,适合留影激励一下自己。

Mayfield Park and Preserve
3808 West 35th Street Mayfield Park

下山归来,去Mayfield追逐满地跑的孔雀,绝对是小孩子的一乐。孔雀开屏,孔雀上树,加上老美难得一件的园林风光,大人也好趁机歇歇腿。如还有兴致,Art Museum 也在旁边。

Zilker Metropolitan Park
Barton Springs Pool
2100 Barton Springs Rd Austin, TX 78746

Zilker是Austin的一块宝地,更是有小孩子的家长常常去休息的地方。tutu 小火车,摸爬滚打的playground, 天气适宜,可以河里荡舟,温泉中泡澡,草地上放风筝。。。大人们,找个荫凉地一坐,或者几家聚聚来个BBQ,让小孩子自由自在的疯去吧。

Zilker Botanical Gardens
2220 Barton Springs Road Austin, TX 78746
512-477-8672

闹腾够了,可以去旁边的植物园走走,收收心,准备一下晚饭的胃口。不走到肚子咕咕叫绝不回去。

晚餐Dinner :
Rudy’s Country Store & Bar
2451 S Capital of Texas Hwy, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 329-5554‎ (Great Texas BBQ)

大口吃肉大碗喝酒最突出Austin饮食特色的好地方。晚餐地点可以和午餐地点根据情况对调,完全看追求的是哪种兴趣。

一天下来,回家小坐,宾主尽欢。

一个用户界面有新意的机票网站

Tripeedo, 最近在机票搜索方面挺火的。其实火的原因,主要是前台用户界面的简化,网址本质还是超级搜索引擎的套路,从Kayak,Orbitz,Travelocity,Expedia等大网站中提取数据。

但是前台还是非常cool, 主要是输入更接近自然语言的搜寻方式,不需要一项项的填写时间地点,只要在搜索框中自由键入一些关键字,Ajax 程序就试图自动匹配到机票搜索输入中。很有创意。

该公司还有一个应用范围更为广泛的搜索条,叫Wundrbar,互联网上的创新日新月异,时不时让人眼睛一亮。我想没准google lab已经开始琢磨这个点子了。

机票搜索的优秀网站,请参看:http://travelsuperlink.com/airtravel。如果你遇到其它实用的网站,也欢迎推荐给我们。

圣诞快乐。

机票数据库数据分析

假日,饱肚,花了些时间清理了一下我们美中机票数据库中的数据,删除了一些无效的数据,把城市和机场的输入标准化,然后突发奇想,看着上万个数据记录,是否可以做一下数据分析,看看美中机票几年的趋势,也检验一下我们数据的有效性。

结果花了一个晚上的时间,才发现对我这种菜鸟来说,数据分析不是件很容易的事情,要画出有意义的图形更麻烦。试了多种方法,才用excel画出个马马虎虎的样子。贴上来,也不算白幸苦一场。

这个图是JFK-PEK双程来回往返在三个月之内的机票价格,根据我们的数据,我只是很简单地按月平均了一下,每个月一个点(不是很科学,因为5/30和6/1不应该简单的区别开,应该有平均移动这类方法吧)。不过即使从这个简单的图中也可以看出,每年旺季时暑期六七八三个月,寒假十二月因为是简单平均,反到看不出票价太贵(因为前半个月和后半个月价格差别较大)。还可以看出来的是2008暑期机票价格奇高,是由于奥运会的缘故了。当然机票价格的整体趋势是上扬的,2005-2006年的七八百元机票,如今已经平均到九百到一千了。

数据分析是很有意思的一件事情,可惜我不是很精通。如果网上有高手愿意试试,我可以帮助提供数据,和我联系,呵呵。

Cruise 回来想到的几点

刚刚从cruise回来,躺在家里的床上,还有船上晃晃的感觉。呵呵,趁着新鲜劲儿,把想到的几点经验总结一下。这是我们第二次cruise,也算是老鸟了,不过估计很长一段时间是不会再去了,再好玩,多了总会腻的。 不过如果你没有去过,还是应该试一试,尤其是陪父母,因为很省心。

补充一下这次旅行想到的,之前 cruise的经验都总结在这儿了:
www.travelsuperlink.com/blog/?cat=10

1。 如果你对晕船比较敏感的,避免船头和船尾,选择甲板比较低的船舱。比较理想的位置是底层的中间。靠近船尾的另外一个坏处是引擎噪声比较大。还有就是要避开靠近电梯等公共设施的船舱,吵杂。

2。正餐的时间最好选晚班的。好处有几个,一是正装晚餐的时候有足够长的时间准备,二是船上拍照比较好的时间是早班在吃饭的时候,拍照的人少。三是早班的人总是比晚班的多,因为船上老年人多吧,所有无论是看show,还是吃饭,晚班的都比较轻闲。四是午餐和晚餐隔开的时间比较长。

不过你要晚上九点就上床呼呼的,不适合以上提到的。

3。岸上观光,选择船上的tour好处是不太怕晚了上不了船。我们在Jamica经历了一次生死时速,差点就回不来了,故事以后再说。自己找的tour价格上有优势。所有在什么地方找什么样的tour,还是值得提前考虑的。

4。船上tour不必太提前订,很少有完全满的。订的时候可以在船舱用电视遥控器订,省着排队了。

5。船上的照片要多拍,多看,不用冲动。总结经验之后,一般第二次拍的要比第一次好。照片的收入是船上除了酒水赌场之外的又一主要收入。

6。船上吃的要精,不要多。诱惑太多。我感觉船上要是放个秤可能会替游轮公司节省成本。

7。行李如果有地方,塞几瓶瓶装水吧,上岸用的到。船上卖的贵。

8。Bingo游戏要早参加,后面越来越难。赌博游戏如果赢了的话一定要见好就收,呵呵。
