Spending some time in Miami with my friend Beth. I ventured downtown to explore the area on foot (not many people walk anywhere in this part of the world). I used the free People Mover to get me where I wanted to go which was to walk around and check out buildings and outdoor sculptures. I saw quite a few but some areas are a bit dodgy – would not do this at night!
Also visited the Perez Museum of Art. He is a wealthy Cuban who has built this place close to the waterfront. It is small but quite interesting and has a great restaurant and shop.
At the other end of the spectrum I caught up with an old friend Klaudia in the shops in Bal Harbour. This is a very ritzy indoor and outdoor shopping Centre with only top end stores – so for window shopping mostly but we had a nice lunch there.
And close by to Brickell where I am staying there is one of the last designs for a building by Zaha Hadid – I think it is going to be spectacular when finished – and no doubt expensive too
