A few hours short of seventeen days, and we’re back in our own home. A cold beer has been cracked, a first load of laundry has been started, and our bed is waiting.
A cortado from a Cuban café almost made it worth the trouble of flying through Miami International Airport. Kathryn got a cappuccino from the same place. Her larger cup had a description of the café on the back. Honestly, I’d never heard of this place, but I remembered enjoying a Cuban coffee in the airport … Continue reading A cortado almost makes it worth the trouble
We’re at Miami International Airport, waiting for our flight back to Phoenix. What a shithole. For once, TSA wasn’t the problem at the security checkpoint; it was totally clueless passengers. I mean, signs were posted in nine languages, and it seems like half of traveling public here can’t read any of them. Ugh. On the … Continue reading Patiently mingling with the unwashed masses in Miami
We’re getting ready to check out of our hotel in Key West and make the drive back to Miami. We haven’t seen the sun much since we got here, and it just started raining again.
We’re somewhere in southern Florida — Florida City, I think — having a coffee and some fast food on our way to Key West. I was able to get some sleep on the flight, so I’m not a total wreck behind the wheel. Getting a rental car in Miami took some patience. There’s such a … Continue reading Somewhere in southern Florida, grabbing a bite

The security checkpoint seems to have been handled by the Air Force. It was mostly young men who appeared to have a sense of humor. The woman at the immigration desk gave … Continue reading Waiting in Montevideo for a flight to Miami
We’ve finally boarded the flight to Montevideo. See you all on the other side.
We should be heading to our departure area right now, but the flight to Montevideo has been delayed yet again. The manager came around to let us know the lounge stays open late when flights to South America are delayed. We’ve used all our premium drink coupons, so we may have to switch to well … Continue reading Temporary stay
We’re safely on the ground in Miami. I already like the Admirals Club lounge here better than the one in Phoenix; this one gave us each two premium drink coupons when we arrived. As far as beer goes, anything better than Budweiser is considered premium. I do miss US Airways. It looks like our flight … Continue reading Chilling in Miami
We’re in our seats for the leg to Miami. Everything is running smoothly so far.
