Miami Snapshot

Flavorpill partnered with Le Meridien resorts for a promotional junket that sent individuals to various hotels for New Year's weekend. Miami was one of the destinations. As a travelogue the project is somewhat engaging. If you're a local there's nothing new here - dinner at Casa Tua is romantic, the Delano is a great place to spend an evening, trying to find Calle Ochco can be maddening, etc. Here's a last-day reflection.
Miami seems the perfect example of the American Dream taken to extremes. Some hundred and fifty years ago a few industrious, visionary people decided to clear the land, drain the swamp, and build a paradise. Since then, others have gone on to build their own paradise within the larger paradise.
