South Beach The Place to Be
I came back from Florida just a few days ago, and like last term, I dove into classes the day after.
The trip was amazing! I’m always up for seeing new places, and South Beach lived up to the expectations. I was initially shocked by how rich the residents of South Beach were. Seeing Lamborghinis, Porsches and Ferraris became an hourly, quite casual occurrence. The party life was evident in every street and corner of the little island.
The weather was premium, it was in high 20’s, and with the humidity it felt like it was 35. The ocean didn’t disappoint, providing nice powerful waves, especially during the last few days.
The road trip to Florida and back was also a lot of fun. We saw some funny road names including:
“Hiatus Dr.” which brought the obvious joke,
your boss calls you and asks “Jim, where are you right now?”
Jim: “I’m on hiatus”
Boss: “Oh ok, no problem, you don’t have to come in today?”
Sorry for the extreme cheesiness of this “joke” but after 18 hours of driving, little things make you laugh.
Also as a bonus, we took a detour to visit the first ever KFC in Kentucky. Pictures of the “KFC Museum” can be seen on my Flickr account. As usual the pictures will trickle into Flickr slowly over time, and the odd video will be uploaded to YouTube, more on that later.
