Walking Around Miami for A Day

20180125_090414

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.

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.

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.
