      Brickell Point

      February 26, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

      Sector dónde la modernidad no esconde el componente histórico de la ciudad de Miami. Aquí se encuentra el río Miami con el mar, que permitía la conexión fluvial de este con los Everglades. Existe el rastro arqueológico llamado, el stonehedge americano (The Miami Circle), un rastro de una civilización de más de 2000 años que dejó vestigios de construcciones circulares en el suelo, descubiertas en el momento de excavaciones para edificios. Ahora es un centro financiero y hotelero de altos kilates, y posee una agradable alameda para caminar con tranquilidad.

      Recibe el nombre en honor a uno de los primeros colonos blancos que se asentó en este lugar y edificó un lugar de comercio clave para el desarrollo de la ciudad.

    • Day 2

      Welcome to Miami

      December 13, 2022 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 75 °F

      Yes, we did have a 40-minute delay taking off from DEN. But who’s complaining? Not us. It was for safety reasons … the aircraft had to be de-iced twice before it could wing its way to Miami with us onboard.

      Yes, the flight had some turbulent moments. But who’s complaining? Not us. We were in the air and not stuck on the ground at DEN due to weather considerations. Besides, for most of the flight, we glimpsed blue skies and sunshine through the porthole.

      At 2:47p, we landed at MIA … 81F and sunny … with a light breeze fanning the palm trees and keeping us comfortable. Our bags came onto the luggage carousel shortly after we arrived to collect them. And then, off to the MIA Mover to get ourselves over to the Intermodal Center where the rental car companies are located. A shiny red Kia Soul was the perfect fit for us — and our luggage. Soon, with the GPS giving us directions, we were on our way to the accommodations we had booked through VRBO … at the W Residences at Icon Brickell.

      A rep from the management company welcomed us in the lobby and escorted us to the condo on the 32nd floor. A quiet building — unlike our last experience with a residence in Miami. Clean; modern decor; a kitchen with all the amenities … including a bottle of Chardonnay in the fridge; and a bedroom separate from the living room so Mui can go to bed early as he is wont to do while I stay up late to write my footprints 😉

      Once we were settled in, we set off to provision ourselves … the plan being to self-cater breakfast and dinner; dine out for lunch while we are running errands or sightseeing over the next couple of days. Our destination was the Whole Foods just across the Miami River from where we are located … walking distance.

      Somewhere along the way, however, we detoured to the Miami Riverwalk and found ourselves enjoying the holiday cheer evident around downtown. Soon, we were at the Bayside Marketplace. Might as well grab a bite to eat! And some dessert too … in the form of delicious gelato from Mammamia!

      Our only complaint? The deafening music blaring from all the different venues … clashing into a din that was unpleasant at best. Time to head back to the condo … making sure to stop off at Whole Foods first. Better late than never.

      Tomorrow has been set aside as a day for errands. What we get to do during our remaining days in Miami after that will depend entirely on how much we accomplish tomorrow.
