    The day on which we would see the Southernmost Point of the Continental USA started with our first Greyhound ride at Miami Bayside. The first miles we could admire the beautiful nature of the Everglades, but soon it started raining and we had the feeling like coming into a Monsoon. We didn’t, of course, but we were disappointed that we couldn’t enjoy the famous view during our ride over the 42 bridges of the Overseas Highway.

    After some hours we arrived at Key West, got two beds at the local youth hostel and started our first sightseeing tour on the island. First we had to see the Southernmost Point, went to the Hemingway House (that man knew how and where to live!) and back to the Point to take some pictures with less people standing in front of it. As I had read in my USA guidebook of an interesting restaurant we searched and found it. And it was great! The “Blue Heaven” has a big garden where you can sit and have your dinner, a veranda and a huge balcony where we sat. As there was a very big tree in the middle of the garden we felt like dining in a treehouse :) …. Our next stop was the famous Duval Street, where there are a lot of bars, pubs and many crazy people making party :) After a drink at Fat Tuesday we walked back to the hostel into our beds ….
