And getting taken

Time for a road trip, and while we are at it, drive home.
I finally got released from my work in Florida. The storm didn’t last as long as many but was a good run.
1st stop was Miami. I have an adjuster friend who lives in Ft Lauderdale and we thought we’d visit with her before heading out.
When we arrived my friend was busy with work so we dumped the RV and went down to the Art Deco District in Miami Beach.
I have fond memories of Miami Beach from when I worked Hurricane Andrew. Things have changed a little since then. There are lots of sidewalk restaurants, many with the menus that look the same. Every restaurant has people in the front trying to rope the tourists in.
We wanted Cuban food and found a place that had a Cuban sandwich and a Cuban plate on the menu. I’d remembered great little Cuban places but couldn’t find any so we settled for this place.
We decided what we wanted for food and thought a drink would be good. I saw that people had these huge glasses of drinks in front of them. On the menu was various sizes including a fishbowl for $35.00 each.
We ordered our drinks but stupidly did not specify the size. Sure enough, we were served the fishbowl size. We decided to keep the drinks because it made for some fun, but knew we’d been taken! The trials of a tourist.
