A Miamian’s Life

Miamians with love

We are simple and happy people who treat life in balance. We love to dance and surely love parades, as you probably already know, we love to celebrate. And don’t forget our love for food, we can talk all day about food! Our dishes are simple yet very tasty, have you tried our Cuban sandwich? It’s the best thing in the world. They tried to improve it, add more thing to it,  but for me, our version is the best. Nothing compares to the original!

The mixture of different races molded us to be hospitable and friendly, we are not afraid to be the one to smile first. It won’t hurt us if you don’t smile back, but it will be nice if you smile back, we will appreciate it so much. Thousands of people visit us the whole year round, and we love it this way. Countless events happen every year, so it became pretty normal for us. Big parties and celebrations, happy hour, and you name it, don’t change who we are. Our love for family and loved ones are still the core of our values. I think it goes the same with other races. We are born this way just like Lady Gaga puts it.

Artworks flood our streets, so you bet, we are creative people. We are creative when it comes to coming up with our own lingo. So don’t be surprised when we say something out of this world, we are just being ourselves. But let me tell you some. When I say, “Ohhhh, that guy is soooo papi chulo!”, what I’m really saying is that guy is so hot, I’m going to die. Here’s another one, “I can’t stop laughing because of her pata sucia dancing.” Patu sucia means dirty foot, the perfect example would be a girl who is losing balance because she’s tipsy. Here’s the last one, “Every goes pachanga when Miami became the champion.” It means that we danced outrageously out of joy and we don’t care who is watching, we are just so happy and can’t contain it.

Ohhhh, that guy is soooo papi chulo!

Like you, we value life as the most important thing. Our reputation for being the party people doesn’t show the whole picture of what we really are. There’s more to us that the online world would not showcase. If you happen to be in Miami, and someone smiled at you, don’t hesitate to smile back. It is our way of saying, “You are welcome here.”

You are welcome here.
