South Beach, Miami

Bijal & I spent this past weekend vacationing in South Beach, Miami! We fell in love! Gorgeous beaches, awesome weather, beautiful women, great night life..I mean really, whats not to love! But a part of me felt guilty. Over the past 6 months I have ranted and raved to everyone about how great a city New York is and that I’d not rather live in any other city. And here I was, in love with Miami within 4 hours of landing there. So what was it that made me fall in love so fast? Everything I loved about South Beach can also be found in California and I lived there for 4 years. So why was Miami any different. And then it all made sense. After having lived in the concrete jungle of NYC for the past 6 months Miami seemed to be just the change I needed. But just as I had hoped, the need for that change was very short lived. 2 days into my trip to Miami, I knew that while Miami was a perfect vacation spot, NY would always be the place to be, MY preferred place to be.

Alcoholic slushies at Wet Willie’s! This one was called the superman and it definitely took me for a ride!

Greatest Hits

Since moving to the east coast, Bijal & I have become huge fans of the show ‘Lost’. We started with season 1 and in six months have gone through 3 seasons! Towards the end of season 3, as we saw one of the characters prepare a “Greatest Hits” list of all the events that had occured in his life, it occured to me that it was my 6 month anniversary of moving to the east coast! As such, I decided to dedicate this blog post to all the ‘Greatest Hits’ aka memories the east coast has given me in the past 6 months. There have been some awesome times, most of them, well documented through pictures. Thanks to my handy iPhone!
