Yup - that's right gators. After 17 El Pasoans spent an entire day waiting to get on the standby flight list out of Miami (where we had missed our original flight), we were able to book flights for half of us to travel on Jan 7th and the other half to get home on the 8th. That meant we had Jan 6th free to go see the Everglades. Although we really wanted to get home, we all became excited when we realised we now had another chance to get make another "landing". We met up with Miami dweller Paulo and travelled to Everglades National Park where we saw gators, lots of beautiful birds like anhingas, turtles, sawgrass, and sun! It was nice to be warm!
Nine of us - including me - are travelling home now. (Can't wait to see my sweet (neurotic) dog, Otis), while there are 8 people left in Miami and travelling to the Florida Keys today with Craig.
See you soon!
