Day One in Miami...

DrivingRhonda and I had a very busy day on Thursday!  After a flight delay and a missed flight out of Atlanta, Rhonda arrived into Daytona and we left straightaway for Miami! 

Thursday evening we met up with my friend, Renee. We went to our favorite Vietnamese restaurant, Miss Saigon Bistro for their awesome Noodle Bowl with Lemon Grass.  My sister was a bit nervous about trying something new and when we told the server that she was unsure she would like what we were ordering, he said, "Yeah!  She looks scared!"

Photo5_copy_1Our favorite "British" host offered to take our picture with the "Good Luck" Buddha, but when we asked him to join us and that it would be on our blog, he politely declined and told us he was wanted by Interpol!

Next, we went to  Bodies The Exhibit:

"Both captivating and edifying, Bodies ...The Exhibition unveils the many complex systems, organs and tissues that drive every aspect of our daily lives and unite us all as Humans. Featuring 21 whole-body specimens and more than 260 organs that have been meticulously dissected and preserved through an innovative process, Bodies ...The Exhibition will enlighten, empower, fascinate and inspire."


The exhibit was very fascinating! Among many interesting things we saw, we also got to hold a human brain and a piece of lung infected with Lung Cancer.  Of course, they were preserved, but they were real.

Did you know that our bones are stronger than steel?  Did you know that our eyes are the same size at birth as they are in adulthood? 

Next, we had to stop and get some Diet Coke for my sister.  Did you know they have these drive-thru grocery-type stores in Miami called Farm Stores where you just drive up and point out all the things to the guy inside and he bags it and just hands it to you through the car window?



Finally, we made it back to Renee's for some popcorn, Sports Center on ESPN (not me, but my sister)and girl talk and laughter!

More tomorrow about the spa and our events from Friday!

Have a good night!
