So we head off first thing for Miami!! On the bus again but not for long. Once we got to Miami bayside market place in biscayne bay we had a thriller speed boat tour. We got the chance to grab some lunch quick so me and Bec wanted to try the infamous five guys (burgers&fries) was sooooo naughty but sooooo nice!! The burger was so good, you get to choose from a massive list as to what you want in it! Plus it wasn't crazy ...
... tour bus. It cost $90 and for the most part wasn't all that great, it takes you through little Havana an area of Miami where many Cubans have settled. The other notable stops were in Coconut Grove (an area I know well, this is where Euan's auntie Mary lives) and finally Coral Gabbles, a brilliant purpose built town, almost a city inside a city.

... first, but some were A-ok from the start. There is a 'Board Walk', a 'Central Park', a theatre, an aqua theatre, numerous restaurants, Johnny Rockets, Starbucks, several pools, spas, stores, etc. etc. There are lounges in which to relax and read and a library for the serious workers! There is a program for the children which is age appropriate so Toby, Rafa and Annalise are all in different groups. That is good for them after having been together ...
... back at the hostel, the nearest place was a 10 minute walk and we got abolutely soaked!!! This was a nightmare cause it meant when i was packing for leaving the next morning i had to pack all my wet stuff. It will be reeking by the time i get to Canada!!! I dont know how but i seem to have alot more stuff now than when i first started and can hardly shut my backpack and this is even after iv given matty all my stuff i want him to take home for me like my burning man ticket ...
