First of all I must apologize for the month long absence. Please forgive me but I had a much deserved break in Miami with my female cousins. This was definately a “female bonding” trip but we have family who lives there as well who showed us how the Trini’s roll. We stayed at the Avalon Hotel in the Art-Deco Section on Ocean Drive right across the street from the beach. The hotel is not 5 star but what it lacks in amenities it more than makes up for in charm. The staff is sweet and helpful and they really try to get to know your name. The complementary breakfast is good too.
I would stay there again but just keep in mind that your water pressure will be low and the rooms are small.
I will fill you in on my two week long vacation that made me fall in love with Miami’s vibe. Ca’nival is October and it may see back for Mas’!
(Tutorial: Mas’ stands for masquerade, which is what you “play” but the Ca’nival is Carnival which is what you attend)
