Well we have gone full circle! Back in miami after 9 days. We have to drop the car off tomorrow back to the rental people, so we have a hostel back in south beach, not the jazz though, eddie couldnt face those fleas again!
Yesterday we decided to go to key west, which was about a 3hr drive south of florida city, on amazing roads to the island. They are just lond roads and bridges and roads in the middle of the ocean, the views were fantastic.
Key west is sposed to be the kooky place of america, and it was! We checked into a nice hotel after much hunting round. We had a look round seperately, then met up to go for dinner and out for the night. We went to sloppy joes and had a pizza and watched a yokel band play country/rock covers, they were.....quite good. Then we went on to another place with a bloke covering newer songs and 80's rock. He was really good and a bit of a comedian as well. The olympic relay races were on in the background, and the usa one aqnd the bar was going mad which was funny. USA USA USA, WHOOOOOO! The gbr chant didnt go down as well. By then we were a bit tipsy and saw a decent looking bar with a roof terrace. We went there, got a drink and I saw it was called 'garden of eden' I said to Eddie "isnt that the place I saw in the guide where 'fig leaves are optional'? He said "Maybe thats why that woman has got her boobs out', ha ha ha it was! When I looked round it was a bit like a middle ages swingers parties, lots of breasts and a bloke in his pants. So we all decided to take our shirts off. It was very liberating! There was this woman with this fat bloke who was old enough to be my mum kept giving me the eye and smiling, so i winked at her and she winked back! Ha ha ha, I was quite scared. We had a few more drinks there and scarpered, was quite drunk so me and sam went home, scott stayed out and got too drunk and lost his camera, poor fella.
Today we are back in Miami after a long drive, spent the early evening on the beach and in the sea, the weather is great. Im back home to get showered and out for dinner now.
Oh yes and I am off to Vegas by myself on tuesday. Speanding a few days there and off to national parks and california etc, should be exciting but I am scared.
