Wynwood, Miami, Florida
In 2015 I got the opportunity to live in Miami for a while and to get to know this American city with its Cuban flavours a bit better.
As everyone knows, Miami is a city in Florida, where the Cuban influence is reflected in the cafes and cigar shops all around the city, especially in South Beach and in Little Havana, Downtown.
I have spent days exploring South Beach, Miami Beach “baby”, walking for hours in the art deco neighborhoods looking for a place to stay, drank a thousand coffees with “leche” and ate a delicious “pollo a la plancha” (grilled chicken!) in its Cuban supermarkets, I struggled hard with the “hey mami” yelled from the cars, but I loved Wynwood so much. That it changed my mind about Miami completely.
Wynwood in South Miami was born as an industrial district, but in a few years, it has become one of the city’s most up and happening districts.
It is an outdoor museum, its graffiti coloured walls and its warehouses have become funky art galleries. You can spend the whole day strolling around its streets, in and out from art galleries, stylish cafes, late-night bars and clothing stores.
