TBT: Astrid on the Go at Nine


LOL!!!! Yes, this was my reaction to this old photo my sister, Gina Abraham, sent me last week. The photo was taken at the swanky Hotel Singapore located on Collins Ave. in Miami Beach when I was nine years old. In the early 1960's this hotel was the only family-oriented hotel in the area. One of its unique features was it had parrots in the lobby something I do not remember and only found out when I googled information about its history. What I do vaguely remember was riding around on the rickshaw. Maybe this wonderful hotel and that "rickshaw ride" was the beginning of my desire to travel to exotic places!!
