Greetings from Little Havana

The real Havana has been in the news a lot these days but I, being a mere normal working American, can only come as close as the Miami neighborhood of Little Havana. Not quite the same but a pleasurable place nonetheless. My wife and I enjoyed a few days in Miami Beach, just kicking back and trying to escape the…

It was easy enough to find, situated on a…
