Our second day of vacation found us heading with my brother, Robb, to Miami for empanadas, Americana coffee and a double decker bus tour (my birthday present from Robb) through Miami and Miami beach. It was a fun tour that took us through downtown Miami, Coconut Grove, Little Havana and Coral Gables. The architecture, history and culture present in Miami was great. Here are some pictures of our day.
Note: If you go on a bus tour through Miami - watch your head, we ducked continuously because of low hanging branches, very low.

|This is only half of the children's courthouse in Miami - sad as it is huge|

One of the best parts was when we got off in Little Havana and David and Robb got Mojitos and Victoria and I got drinks. When the bartender found out it was my birthday she had the band play Happy Birthday for me. It was very sweet.

If we go back to Miami, I would want to spend a day visiting Miami beach, restaurants, shops and the beach - maybe a walking tour of the history of the area.
