unlocking the senses

Its hard to have a bad day in Key West. I'm here with my friend Myron from Dallas. We both got stuck doing work for a good bit of the day. (Our friend Tres, who couldn't make it this year, would be so dismayed. Last year he would come up from the pool and find us both buried in our laptops and exclaim "what are you doing?!") We finally ventured out in search of a Cuban Sandwich, finding excellent ones at a little joint called Jose's Cantina. We wandered without any plan, which was best part about it. We stopped in a gallery or two and got Mojitos from streetside stands. We capped the day with dinner at my favorite place from last year, Santiago's Bodega. Its some of the best tapas I've ever had. They even just started carrying a new Weiss beer - Tucher - which had a great spicy taste - I'll have to look for it elsewhere. Even a lazy day without a plan always ends up being a feast for your senses in Key West.
