We were lucky to spend a week with my family in southern Florida last week...it was like being in another world-we were constantly comparing things to the way we do them back in the US...hahaha. So you can get an idea, here is a taste of the tropics:Pompano beach- where my tia lives-bike rides to the beach, evenings in the pool, walks on the pier, homemade arepas, FAMILY, and the best market I've ever been to in the states (photos to come).
Later we took a few day trips down to Miami passing Ferraris, Mazerattis and Aston Martins-suddenly making a BMW look boring, enjoying the clean white high rises of downtown, crossing under pink skies to South beach where you better look good cuz everyone is looking, eating fantastic Cuban food,swimming in the warm, crystal blue waters at the beach, and loving the art deco on Ocean Drive and the heeeeat on South beach...
We even made it all the way down to Key Largo..but, unfortunately we got rained out that day.
It was tropical, hot, and soo much fun...a perfect mini beach escape. xo
