Partir, c'est mourir un peu: to leave is to die a little, wrote Haraucourt in 1890.
And so Miami is gone from us, after fifteen years. The city we knew well, perhaps better than some. In a way, we were among the last of our generation, the starry-eyed dot-com youngsters who were going to change the world.
But the bubble burst, and that cohort of friends largely left for Buenos Aires, Madrid, México, New York, Paris, São Paulo, San Francisco, Seattle and other places. It is now our turn to leave our Miami friends behind (but not to lose them), and to make new friendships in new horizons.
As we do not get to update this site as often as we'd like, and sometimes we post on things that may have taken place a few days before, here is a clearer timeline:

- May 12th - left dock, becoming full-time cruisers
- May 26th - left Miami
