{ "Little Havana" Ybor City }

We drove 3 hours southwest to enjoy a day in Tampa. Or more specifically, Ybor City, aka Little Havana. We walked the old historic streets and enjoyed the wonderful woodsy scent of cigars coming from the local cigar factories and cigar shoppes established by Cuban settlers. Other street corners greeted us with the scent of coffee beans being brewed in the various coffee houses. When our tummies growled, we satisfied the hunger with plantain crusted Mahi Mahi and quenched our thirst with a pitcher of Cuban mojitos at the original Columbia Restaurant. 
It was a really nice day in which my husband summed up by saying, "I feel most like myself in places like this."

Sealed with a Kiss, Kirsten
