It's been a while since I blogged about traveling. Well, hopefully I will get to visit many interesting places this year and have the opportunity to write about them.
I saw this article about how Miami Beach is coping with the economic recession. Miami is one of my favourite places to visit and is all about ostentation: the glitz, glam and very gaudy. It's long shed its former image as the place where American senior citizens go to retire. Re-reading one of my favourite childhood books, Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself, indeed showed me a very different Miami from the city that I know and love now.
There's a cool slideshow on the NYT site with quintessential MIA images.
