A South American Escape Part 1 – Miami

This past Spring, Joline and I embarked on what we considered a trip of a lifetime. Our jaunt took us from the Beaches of Rio, through the Jungles of Iguassu Falls, to the “Paris of South America (Buenos Aires), all the way over to Peru and the Land of the Incas. Below are some of the highlights in photos. Enjoy!

Of course, most trips to the Continent to our South begin with a layover in Miami. Fortunately, we had 11 hours so we decided to venture out to South Beach.
Miami was unseasonably cool but we happened upon a Gay Pride Parade on Ocean Drive so there was even more people watching on this strip than usual. 🙂

Time to head back to the airport.  Next stop, Rio de Janeiro…!
