After dragging around Alice and Minnie to various chemists, until I found one that sold cold sore patches, we went to the beach until it was time for some lunch. Me and Alice just had some crackers, but Minnie got a wrap. The Vietnamese guy called Kevin wanted to go back to the beach with us, but I don't think he enjoyed the fact we were just sunbathing and didn't want to go into the water with him. He said I looked like I was still at school, which I'm going to take as complement.
When we were starting to turn pink, we thought the best way of staying out of the sun was to walk to the shops near the cinema. We walked past Miami Ink (a tattoo shop which has a TV program) and so decided to go in, but I realised once there that I didn't watch it enough to recognise any of the staff. I had left my camera at the hostel and didn't take a photo like I wanted to. Minnie had seen some shoes on the mannequins in an H7M and had been trying in every store since then to see if they actually had the shoes available to buy, and I had had a similar situation with some ankle boots I had seen coincidentally also in H&M, but neither of us found them. Alice got a bikini, and I got a purse in Urban Outfitters. As we ran out of shops to visit, we headed back to the hostel, this time by bus and made dinner- I tried my Indian spiced kale chips with a veggie burger and tomatoes.
The Brazilian/ Portuguese couple staying in our room had hired a red convertible mustang and wanted to make the most of it before handing it back at 10 tomorrow morning and so they took us for a drive to downtown- I'm glad Diego had told us that he had driven racing cars beforehand as it made me feel slightly safer! It was really cool to see all the skyscrapers all lit up. Downtown wasn't as busy as it had been last night when they went, so we had a quick look around at the bars, and then Diego drove us to The Clevelander, back in Miami Beach, where Diana, the lady who read mine and Alice's tarot cards, was supposed to be performing in the courtyard. Unfortunately her band hadn't turned up and so it was a DJ instead. We stayed for one drink (which we were a bit peeved that they not only added tax but also an obligatory tip) and then went home.
