A few shots around Miami..where I grew up. We took a ride down there today to see how things had changed and as usual, everything looked quite different. Some parts of it are even more lush and beautiful than ever before, especially around the University of Miami. I miss the large banyan trees that were destroyed in Hurricane Andrew. But overall, things look better than ever! They finally finished widening an expressway (Palmetto) that I had worked on as an intern in college - it's a big improvement!
Driving was the usual roller coaster ride of constant unexpected terrifying moments and there were only two times I thought might turn into fatalities for us, but our guardian angels were working overtime and all was well!
My favorite Cuban restaurant EVER - La Carreta, at Bird and 87th Avenue in Miami - has the most delicious Cuban food I have ever eaten! Upon landing in Ft. Lauderdale, we immediately zoomed to Miami to have some Cuban food! Brian had chicken and yellow rice while I had piccadillo (a ground beef dish). We shared some fried yuca (like a potato) and also some plantains (cooked bananas).
Brian wanted a cafe con leche afterwards. Infinitely better, stronger and cheaper than Starbucks! I love this window they have for walk-ups!
Some boats and a view of the bay...
The entrance quad at my high school. WOW - has it changed! I love the sailboat from 1926 they now have in the quad.
