Returning from vacation last month we had a stopover in Miami and had dinner at a Cuban cafeteria-style restaurant.

The other shoe dropped a day after we got home. I was "not normal" for a week. SO was fine.

What's really scary is that I saw a lot of flight crews eating there.
Did you actually get over to Calle Ocho or was it someplace at the airport?

Make something with it and give it to that nasty neighbor you don't like.

Just joking. Introduce it to Senor Garbagio.

I'm so sorry for you, hope it didn't turn you off Cuban food, but I busted out laughing when I saw where you went.

Surrre... let's all have a laugh at Andy's expense....



Maybe it wasn't the restaurant at all. Maybe he was having a reaction to the peanuts he ate on the plane.

Are you kidding me!? We were in coach. No peanuts at all. But you can buy a beer for $7.00.

Why did you laugh? Does that restaurant have a reputation?

I love Cuban food! But I think I'll stick to making it at home.
