We are back in my hometown---Miami, Florida. Saw the hospital where I was born and the apartment where we lived until I was three weeks old (they kicked us out becase the building didn't allow children).
Dad says that most of the buildings in this neighborhood were not here back then. There is a lot of construction going on. One new concrete building after another. When our plane was landing in Miami, RJE said, "Those are skyscrapers. I've heard about them."
Today we walked to the supermarket a few blocks away. There was so much dust from the building sites, and traffic, and noise, and litter everywhere. Mom showed me the building where she used to work right before I was born.
This is what we see out the window today:
Mom says it's like the view from the hospital room where she had me. No wonder I like to swim.
