Arrive v early on our flight to Miami with American Airlines who I hate. Rude staff and generally crap plus no back seat tv. At least we got some sleep.

Spent ages trying to fathom out the airport to Miami transport system and eventually did to get out before our next flight to GC. Got a bus for a couple of dollars to Miami Beach. I was joking on the plane about how weird it will be to be in an English speaking country again. How wrong was I? Everything here is in Spanish too!!

Ok there is some English around but a lot of it is in Spanish. Shop signs, bus passengers all speak Spanish felt like we havent left S America. Get to Miami Beach after the sun has risen and have a walk along the boardwalk with numerous joggers going by.
Beach is pretty beautiful, shame about the high rises around it and all the building work going on. Go into a shop to get some breakfast and are staggered by the prices for a bottle of water and a fruit salad (yes we are back on healthy eating again). All of the staff speak Spanish to each other and the food is the same as in S America including a lot of the chocolates and biscuits we saw in Argentina that are actually made there. Weird!

We go back to the airport pleased to have seen a bit of Miami and get some fresh air before our next leg. Forgot to mention only reason we came here is cos our RTW flight tickets make us travel via the US to get to Central America, think this is pretty common.
