Miami Beach

(L) The area ofSign surrounding by water is the city of Miami.

Key West is known as the southernmost city in the Continental United States. It is also the southern terminus
of U.S. 1 after the stating point in Maine. Key West is located in 207 km southwest of Miami, Florida.

For the writer, this is the third time to come to Florida. The first visit was made in April of 1962. After a long
distance car trip to this far south end of American continent from Chicago, we finally arrived at the road end
of the highway, US Route 1, which runs along the coast line of the North Atlantic Ocean. At that time, I was
so deeply impressed with the stop road sign placed at the road edge of Highway US 1. Beyond this point,
it is the sea of Gulf of Mexico. After about 50-year time, it still remains with my never forgotten memory.

(R) Map of Key West.

A wide highway traffic is provided in the area of Miami.

We drove directly from Miami airport to the hotel stands near the Miami Beach. The beach is very close after
we passed through the bridge of Julia Tuttle Causeway on the ten-lane expressway directed to the West.
The hotel we made a reservation is tasted as atmosphere of classic fashion.

A Mecca for the surfing lovers, Miami Beach.

A wooden promenade has been well developed along the sandy beach. Although the sunlight is strong in the
daytime, a walking at the time before sunset is so pleasant with a gentle sea breeze. Under a direct sunlight in
the daytime, a few people burn the skin on the sand beach. When I visited the same place in Miam in 1962,
we could see many beautiful bikini swimsuit women with the excitement of the feeling; however, we cannot
see such a thing now. What I saw at that time could be fantastic, only loneliness remained in the mind. The
number of tourists to Miamiis certainly decreased the number, compared with that of Hawaii.

Parrot Jungle Island

Parrot Jungle is a beautiful tropical garden with over 3,000 exotic animals, including 1,100 birds, plus turtles,
alligators and other reptiles and amphibians, as well as 500 species of plants. The garden takes place in the
period of 70 years at the district of South Miami. In 2003 Parrot Jungle was moved to Watson Island near
the area of Miami Beach and is now named Parrot Jungle Island.

Miami is one of the country's most important financial center. It is a major center of commerce, finances,
corporate headquarters, and boasts a strong international business community. According to the ranking

most important global cities in the United States.
