"Let's get some tickets for tonight's game" we said.
"They aren't playing tonight" the lady said.
Hmmmm. So we wouldn't be seeing Miami Heat in action.
So we went into the clubshop and that's when the heavens opened.
We hadn't seen rain like it and neither had Miami.
Heaviest rainfall ON RECORD.
First there was a skyscaper. then there wasn't a skyscaper.
How can you go from
in a day?!!
We later found out a record 2.7 inches of rain had beaten the previous record by 1.2 inches.
So we made a run for it, we got absolutely soaked, to the nearest indoor place of interest that would accept two bedraggled tourists.
Look at all these photos of sunsets.

These foam flowers threw great shadows on the wall.
Did you spot the flipflops inside the hoops?
And still it rained.
We did our best to dry out our clothes before flying home next day, the thought of travelling home in wet trainers didn't appeal.
We had about 2 hours next morning before being picked upfor the airport (or NOT) (they forgot us AGAIN) so we went for a little walk and accidentally ended up joining a charity walk for Parkinson's Disease.
I'm sure Miami is very nice but it didn't like us. Its silly weather and humid smoggy tumbledrier air gave us no encouragement to return,
Art Deco buildings, Miami Heat, South Beach etc, we missed the lot :(
I did, however do a 7mile high plank in the aeroplane galley at 610 mph.
