SMALL, OLD APARTMENT BUILDINGS CAN BE MADE WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE -- 1

This Little Havana 6-Unit Complex Footsteps from Calle Ocho
Proves Barrier-Free Can Be Beautiful



We know the building well.

For as long as we’ve lived in Little Havana, it is on the lot next door to a dirt cheap meal for 4 – the 8 piece pizza at Little Caesars at Calle Ocho and SW 8th Avenue. 

While we praise it for its apparent affordability, the eight-decade-old building looked shabby and in need of a sprucing up.


Sadly, very few people save old buildings in Little Havana.

RIAD DAR EL PACO -- 2

BEST PLACE TO STAY IN ESSAOURIA MOROCCO



I ran into Dar El Paco’s owners in the souk and mentioned I was looking for the perfect gift for my wife. 

They walked me around the corner to an English-speaking atelier who spent a ton of time finding a great, Moroccan-made present.

When I was concerned that I was getting a little disoriented as far as walking from the Medina to the bus station for the coach back to Marrakech, they again walked me to my destination.

Perfect Place, perfect people.
