It seems like we just arrived in Miami a little while ago, but it is already time to leave. We have done a lot: soaked in early morning walks along the ocean, gotten a sense for the Miami art scene, and indulged in several Cuban meals. There have been lazy weekends on the patio, days on the beach with visitors, and regular work days. It’s funny how in such a short time we have gotten to know particular corners of Miami Beach really well. It will be bitter sweet to leave.

Some observations about South Beach: wear what you feel comfortable in, eat ice ream on lincoln road, never go to the beach at noon, don’t count on a great farmer’s market, find good rice and beans, venture off of the tourists strips though don’t expect to find much. Our favorite restaurant is Sylvano, our favorite brunch is at Hotel Victor, and nothing beats a quick burger at Shake Shack. Don’t forget to leave and go to Wynwood.

With that, I am ready to move on to the next step. Our car has been shipped and the bags are packed. We will spend holidays in California before our big move to New York.
