On the Bourbon Trail
Spent the weekend in Louisville, Kentucky. It is Bourbon country, home of the Kentucky Derby, the REAL DEAL. Mint juleps and sassy Southern gals galore. Can you think of a better way to Passover with the fam? We quite enjoyed ourselves, actually. LV is incredibly mellow, full of nice, people and plenty of parking spaces. Being there I realized how traumatized we are living in Miami, with the overcrowded everything and the Darwinian fight for resources - parking, restaurant tables, grocery store lines. Going to the mall there was actually pleasant; it was practically empty. I imagine that's what visiting diplomats feel when public places are cleared out for them.
