Jaza's World Trip

United States

Transit in the city where the heat is on. I can't really say I've been to Miami, because I just stopped here in transit, in between San Francisco and Lima. I didn't leave the airport. Anyway, I don't really have any huge desire to see Miami, so maybe I'll see it properly one day, and maybe I won't.

Miami Intl, one day before Pesach

In the two hours that I spent in Miami Intl Airport this afternoon, on my way from San Francisco to Lima, I observed that there are only three groups of people here. Group one: African-Americans. Group two: Hispanics. Group three: orthodox Jews. I half-fit into the last of these three groups (Jewish, but not terribly religious), which was kinda good. I think I ran into the Pesach crowd when I got here, because I saw literally hundreds of religious Jewish families, in the 15 minutes or so that I was walking through the airport. Looks like the entire Jewish population of New York (and related cities) has flown down to see the grandparents for Pesach!
