The shopping in Miami is really good. So good that two Irish girls in our dorm bought two extra suitcases to bring home all the clothes they bought in Miami. Hope they get the weather for it!
We went to a place called Coconut Grove on Monday, it involved getting a bus downtown and another to Coconut Grove, wasn't really worth the effort to be honest. Wasn't as nice as the beach, it was a Marina.
Miami is really about people watching and there's lots of that to be done! Don't know where the locals get money for their cars or the petrol, but there's a lot 'cruising around'
We watched a bunch of girls play volleyball one day and they looked like they fell out of In Style Magazine - not a blemish - anywhere.
It's the kind of place a film crew randomly films on the beach - which resulted in me running behind Grechy to stay out of view of the wide angled lens!
Everything is pretty expensive in Miami. So, we lived off Subway sandwiches which i learned to tolerate because they had a particular 'deal' going. We also signed up for library cards towards the end of our stay to get free Internet and scoured newspapers for two for one deals on coffees and smoothies.
We are now officially backpacking!
