Arrgh, I hate this part of Miami, corner of Macdonald Avenue and La Calle Ocho.
I think it's a bloody eyesore, this trailer park, and one which you can imagine, always gets the worst brunt of any hurricane here.
According to an ex-classmate whose family actually lived there, they suspect that the trailer park is built over graves, since right next door to it is Miami's most famous cemetery, Woodland Memorial Park.
What with the corpses, and the rats, and the fact that you could get blown away at any opportunity due to our precarious weather 6 months out of the year, it's a wonder people decide to stay there.
Although I do have to say...
Even the trailer parks here, look mignon. Pink! Love it.
And you can't fail but to notice in one of the driveways, that vintage Mercedes, sporting a pear green colour which was all the rage in 1979.
You know what the worst part of this place is?
That whenever I go through there, I always remember and weep over the demise of Miami's finest Cuban pork joint -- La Lechonera.
I'm not much for pulled pork, or pork in general, but every meal I had there, was to die for.
Now it's some Salvadorean eatery, which I refuse to frequent.
Mariscadas y Pupusas...what on earth.
No, sir. I'm still in mourning for La Lechonera.
