As you know, I travel a fair bit...
.. and one of the pleasures of travel is discovering new things. And, of course, from a SearchResearch perspective, traveling is just an unending stream of curious moments... many of which bring fascinating Challenges for us to solve.
Here's this week's Challenge, derived from my travels to San Diego (I'm here to teach a 1-week class at UCSD).
1. I found this teapot at the place I'm staying. Naturally, I have NO idea who this guy is--can you help me figure it out? FWIW, his image is also on every teacup in the place. Who is the man, and why would someone have a tea service with his fancy hat on it?
2. Many of the streets here are lined with these beautiful flowering trees. What kind of tree is this? They bloom so beautifully, are they native here?
3. As I was landing at the San Diego airport, I could see a couple of neighborhoods that seemed completely blanketed in these trees. Where should I go (nearby!) to see a bunch of these trees all lined up?
I don't know about you, but these are typical questions that come up for me as I travel. Maybe this happens to you too (if you read this blog, I bet it does!) -- so let's exercise those SearchResearch skills before you head off on summer holidays!
As always, tell us HOW you figured out the answers. We all want to learn what great SearchResearch skills you've got.
