The one time I decide to go out with some not so close people, and well it was a FAIL. Okay, maybe it wasn’t so bad, but just not what I expected. [They’re hardly to blame] If you read my previous posts you would have known by now that I recently (almost 2 months now, lol) moved to Miami. I also mentioned that I’m down for adventure, but it’s hard doing so solo and I didn’t have any friends here. However, I then realized that one of my close friends’ brother lived 15 minutes away. So on one of my day offs I hit him up and asked if he wanted to go visit Wynwood Walls with me. After all it was first on my “Adventure Miami” list. It didn’t seem like a bad idea at first, because he was chill enough to hang with, and would probably be a handy photographer to take my pictures.
First off nobody understood why I wanted to go this place so bad. I mean creative people are attracted to creative things right? But what do they know about my creativity? The trip didn’t turn out how I expected it to at all. Guess that’s what I get for having expectations.
- We were supposed to leave at 3 and we left around 4 o clock.
- The weather sucked. It was overcast the whole day with an occasional drizzle.
- His older brother decided to tag along, and well we never really spoke #awkward.
- We only saw a few of the pieces, because they wanted to get lunch.
On the mini plus side —> The pieces were pretty cool, and I could see myself having a photo shoot in that area.
On the down side —> So many things (bad hair day, random outfit, bad mood) were against me that day that I didn’t even take one picture in front any of the art work.
I snapped a few pictures of the area, but also forgot to save many of my snaps. Obviously I need to go again, and with a different crowd to get the true experience!

QUICK RESTAURANT REVIEW: KYU
So since my adventure got cut short I was at least looking forward to some good food within the art district. We passed a couple of restaurants while walking to the main area of the park; but before I got a chance to research them to see what I wanted his brother already suggested a place. Nonetheless we agreed to go there, and it was right around the corner.
KYU – a Modern Asian restaurant
The outside was aesthetically pleasing, and begging to be photographed. However, I was already in a bad mood. Inside looked even better, everything was artsy and you just felt like “someone” being there. At first thought I was skeptical on the price range of this place, then again we were in the art district. How could I expect any thing less?
P.S. Only picture I managed to save of what we had. [Also forgot the names, but they were non-alcoholic]
To eat I had fried chicken (typical black person) and a soft-shell steamed crab bun. We were supposed to try something new, and it was the only thing that sounded appealing *besides the chicken*. My friend had fried chicken as well, and octopus. The fried chicken wasn’t KFC but it could pass thanks to this orange sauce it was served with. The crab bun however was awful. Definitely not the crab I’m accustomed to. Forced myself to finish it so I wouldn’t be angrier about wasting money. The size portions were okay I guess for the place. In all I tried something new and it wasn’t my style, maybe it could be yours.
