Woops, I forgot the picture towards the port.

 

 

 

Was wondering if you had the ability to see through buildings.

I am so looking forward to seeing/reading YOUR review of the Carnival Horizon.  I just booked it for March 15, 2020 for my 3 son/3 d-i-l's and a friend. Since I haven't been to Jamaica in many a year, that is one reason why I picked this itinerary, only it is for 6 days. I have been on 19 cruises so far, and this is the 2nd one I will be taking them on. I know by seeing videos and pictures of the inside of the ship, I'm sure there are things I will not like, but I am not nit picky, and I just go with the flo.  The main thing of a cruise is to have a good time!  By the date you posted you are doing the cruise, it looks like you will be boarding very soon! 🙂

I'm on the move now... Hopefully Miami doesn't rain on my parade...

 

Next stop? We'll all find out together...

Sorry, the place I was in was a complete dead zone for signal... I made my way up to the Wynwood neighborhood, where I've never been before... It's like the arts district in Miami.

My first destination was Kyu, a happening restaurant in the area. I needed some food, so I had their Korean fried chicken first...

I also needed a drink, so this one was called My milk punch brings all the boys to the yard... Tequila, of course. Mezcal, to be exact. $18

And, the ingredients.

I needed more food to absorb the drinks I was about to have, so they had a crispy pork dish that sounded good... Bring it on...

And, another drink..

Here are the ingredients and name of that last drink. Sorry, I traveled all the way across town, and I'm trying to get caught up...

I wanted to try the ant egg tacos or the agave worm tacos, but they were $25 each... A little rich for my blood...

 

I did order some smokey mezcal...

The area where I am is home to the Wynwood walls...

Chapulinas tacos... ( Grasshoppers...)

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously, grasshoppers?  Is there nothing you won't eat?  🤮  Although I guess the tequila will kill anything they might carry.

removed pictures of nasty grasshoppers

It was a long walk from Wynwood to where I'm at now... Here are a few pictures I took along the way... Kind of a seedy area I just went through. Hopefully I wouldn't end up here.

Again, the signal is abysmal inside the place where I am now... Will post more pics once I'm on the move...

The Wynwood area is full of art galleries and old warehouse's that were converted to a giant art scene...

Alright, I'm outside again where there's actually phone signal... I'm a little bit North of downtown, not even sure what the area is called.

I'll go back to my walk from Wynwood to here...

As you can see, every square inch of the area is covered in art... You couldn't sling a dead cat without hitting a mural of some kind... My goal was to reach another bar, this time a tiki bar... During my walk, I hoped that I was on the right side of the tracks...
