Happy Labor Day! I was so incredibly grateful for this past weekend. I haven't had a quiet, vegetative, relaxing weekend in months. And if you know me, you know that I'm pretty introverted and I love alone time so I've been growing more and more anxious with every busy weekend. But, I finally got a chance to cool off - and a long weekend at that - so I'm feeling a lot happier.
We landed in time for lunch and we headed to Alma Mexicana. We got fish tacos (of course) and an order of steak tacos which were generously sprinkled with cilantro. As cilantro lovers, we were all v. grateful. The horchata was also on point. It was sweet and cinnamony and creamy, just how I like it. (By the way, if you haven't had horchata before, I've got a recipe over on my food blog!)
Eden Roc (which I stayed at the last time I was in Miami) and it's a lovely hotel but I was super disappointed with one particular staff member during our check in.
Here's the scoop: our room wasn't ready yet but the man I talked to said that it would likely be ready soon so we were kind of hanging out. I went up to the desk to find out what time our room might be ready so we could decide whether to go out and do something or continue to wait. The lady at the desk typed away on the computer and looked up at me and said, "Hm, your room might be ready around 4 o'clock." So I said, "Seriously? 4? What time is regular check in?" "It's 4:00." "Okay, so you're just telling me that the room might be ready by regular check in?" And I walked away before she had a chance to answer. She was stupid. Isn't that the dumbest answer ever? Thankfully, that was the only sour note of the entire trip. And luckily, our room was ready about 10 minutes later.
