    Miami South Beach

    The drama CSI: Miami and Pitbull who's always included Miami in his song lyrics taught me about Miami, and seeing this place with my own eyes was just unbelievable. I enjoyed exploring this place even with the Sargassum seaweed invasion because there's so much more to see besides the beaches here in Miami. I've included in this post the places I've visited or come across with during our three nights stay in South beach.

    La Candelaria happened to be the first place we visited for sightseeing in Colombia, and although it had been over a year since our last visit, I was still able to remember the moments in my mind. On our first visit, we're still new to this country, having arrived in Colombia just five days ago, we yet to find an apartment, and still staying in the accommodation that the BC had arranged for us, Juliette ApartaSuites in Chapinero.
