Miami on a rainy day

Friday was our day to relax and see Miami before the wedding activities began on Saturday. In the morning we got together with our friends (and the bride and groom) Katie and Eddie to check out their home and to finish up some details regarding wedding photography. We checked out some of the sites we wanted to visit on Saturday – the wedding photos are gorgeous! Can’t wait to post them! For the afternoon we planned to eat more Chilean food, go to the zoo, and drive around the city. The problem…it never stopped raining! El viernes fue nuestor dia de relajo para pasear por Miami antes de la actividades del matrinmonio que comenzaban Sabado. En la manana nos juntamos con nuestros amigos Katie y Eddie ( los novios) para visitar distintos lugares donde querian sacar fotos despues de la boda. Con ellos terminamos de conversar detalles de todo lo que tenia que ver con fotografia – las fotos van a estar espectaculares! En la tarde planeamos en comer mas comida Chilena, ir al zoologico, y pasear por la ciudad. El problema….nunca paro de llover!

The rain changed our plans a little bit, which doesn’t mean that we didn’t enjoy the day. Fortunately, we could go to the Chilean restaurant again rain or shine – any weather is good weather for empanadas! We headed back to Sabores Chilenos for one last visit. There were so many dishes that we wanted to try that we had to go back! This time we tried Porotos con Mazamorra, Pastel de Choclo, Chilean salad, and of course, more empanadas for Leslie. Everything was delicious and we were stupidly full when we left! The plan was to go to the zoo after lunch, but the rain never gave us a break. Actually, it didn’t stop all day! La lluvia cambio nuestros planes un poquito, lo que no significo que no disfrutamos el dia . Por suerte podiamos ir a los restaurantes Chileno con sol o con lluvia – cualquier tiempo es buen tiempo para comer empanadas! Nos fuimos a Sabores Chilenos para una ultima visita. Habian tantos platos que queriamos probar que teniamos que volver! Esta vez probamos los Porotos con Mazamorra, pPastel de Choclo, ensalada Chilena, y claro, mas empanadas para Leslie. Todos estuvo delicioso y quedamos estupidamente llenos cuando nos fuimos! El plan era ir al zoologico despues de almorzar, pero la lluvia no se tomo descanso. La verdad, no paro en todo el dia!

We decided to go to spent some time in little Havana instead – particularly to visit the store Sentir Cubano. The store was awesome – they had everything you can imagine that reminds you of Cuba: coffee paraphernalia, clothes, domino tables, Fidel Castro toilet paper (!!!) and historic items from the island. It was a very interesting place. We had fun looking around, but after that huge lunch we decided we needed a nap if we wanted to be functional. Decidimos visitar la pequena Havana – particularmente la tienda Sentir Cubano. La tienda estaba genial – tenian de todo lo que se puedne imaginar que les recuarde de Cuba: cosas para el cafecito, ropa, mesas de domino, papel higienico con la cara de Fidel (!!!) y articulos historicos de la isla. Un lugar muy interesante. Lo pasamos bien mirando, pero despues de ese tremendo almuerzo decidimos ir a dormir una siesta si queriamos ser funcionales mas tarde.

The nap turned out to be 4 hours of sleep for me, and 4 hours of homework for Leslie, which was a really good thing for both of us. But after that we were hungry…can you imagine? I think just the thought of Chilean food available makes our brain trick our bodies into being hungry…and we don’t mind! This time we headed to a different Chilean restaurant called Viva Chile near Ft. Lauderdale. This place was further away from our hotel (1 hour with traffic) but we really wanted to try it. La siesta termino siendo de 4 horas para mi, y 4 horas de hacer tareas para Leslie, l oque fue muy bueno para ambos. Pero despues de eso nos dio hambre…imaginense? Creo que el solo pensar en comida Chilena enganaba a nuestros cerebros y cuerpos y eso nos daba hambre…y no nos importo! Esta vez fuimos a un restaurante diferente llamado Viva Chile cerca de Ft. Lauderdale. Este lugar quedaba mas lejos del hotel (1 hora con el trafico) pero queriamos probarlo.

After a long drive we finally arrived at Viva Chile- a really nice place with the channel “TV Chile” blaring on the big screen tv and with a menu full of great options. Everything was amazingly delicious (yes, we said that again): we had a Barros Luco, a Mariscal (seafood soup), an empanada, and for dessert a torta de mil hojas. Did I mention it was delicious?! To make it even better, we had live music by the singer of the Chilean-Cuban duo SopaBruja. She was fantastic. We had a great time. If you live in Ft. Lauderdale, Viva Chile is a must visit place if you want some good Chilean food! Despues de manejar un rato, por fin llegamos a Viva Chile – un lugar muy lindo con TV Chile en la tele y con un menu lleno de buenas opciones. Todo estaba delicioso (si, lo dije de nuevo): comimos un Barros Luco, un mariscal,empanada, y de postre torta de mil hojas. Les dije que estaba delicioso? Para hacerlo aun mejor, tuvimos musica en vivo de la vocalista del due Chileno-Cubano Sopabruja. Cantaba hermoso. Lo pasamos bien. Si viven en Ft. Lauderdale, Viva Chile es un lugar que deben visitar para probar buena comida Chilena!
