As an interpreter, my first business trip in the U.S. was actually to Miami. Interestingly, because of some administrative mishap, the business was cancelled. So I found this free city train my best friend for the day.
First stop, down-town shopping center.
People selling boat tours by the dock.
Blackboard t-shirts, where you can write on them and then erase.
On my way to Jason’s favorite grilled chicken place, only met with a raised bridge. I can imagine how aggravating this is for the rush-hour drivers.
The chicken place was technically not a chicken place, it was actually a bar next to the water.
Highlight of the day.
The highlight of the highlight is the sauce.
Very windy day on Ocean Drive, the most touristy part of the town.

Behind the touristy Ocean Drive was the famous South Beach neighborhood – or notorious for its housing prices.
Jason lived in Miami for 9 months before moving into Dallas – this was his old apartment in Miami. Apparently it was the only rental apartment on the South Beach Island; others structures are all sold to individuals.
Little strip of shops across from his old apartment. Jason said he couldn’t remember how many times he had to borrow a spot under these umbrellas to avoid the rain.
Passed by this immense building on my way back to the airport, any clue what it is? Probably a government building.
