This weekend brought a flurry of Miami-related stories in newspapers around the world. Among them:
- The New York Times does Miami on a budget. The reporter and his wife spent $500.38 during a weekend making the rounds of the predictable (News Cafe, The Raleigh, Puerto Sagua) haunts.
- The London Independent's reporter reviews the bargain-priced Townhouse as a cheap accommodation on 20th Street on the Beach. This is a good article to send to your out-of-town friends and family.
- Le Monde Diplomatique from France assesses the possibility of change in the Cuban-American political ranks here in Miami. In English.
