Jan 14, 2017 - Calgary to Miami

Dave and I left Calgary on the day after the -35 degree C weather to hot, warm +28 degree C at Miami, Florida. Arrived in Miami before supper and check-in to the Homewood Suite airport West. Turn out it started our trip kinda in an adventure - there must be over 100 shuttles going around, and around at the airport but we don't seemed to be able to locate the right one! After an hour or two waiting, we decided to take a cab to the hotel instead. It turn out the Shuttle Van has a large sign of Hilton Garden Inn on it but a very small "green Duck" for the Homewood Suite - Sigh.  

We went across the street of the hotel to a small Plaza and there is a great Cuban eatery - I had the seafood soup, it was great!  Most people here speak Spanish and English is a second language here. It took a while in using hand signs and nodding heads to convey the message about Dave is allergic to nuts.

Wow,  definitely we are on an Adventure.
