It’s kind of hard to believe, but despite having visited the vast majority of states in the U.S. by 2008, I had never been to Florida. So I was particularly pleased to finally get to visit the Sunshine State when my buddy Dan got married there. I was also pleased to find out that Florida has more than hurricanes, bad drivers, old people, flat land, and humidity when I got there. On the contrary, the two places I visited (Fort Lauderdale and Miami) were really nice! In fact, Miami is now my favorite large city outside of Paris.
