Day 52: Unexpected stay in Miami

Due to delayed American Airlines Flight 1058 in combination with Miami airports refusal to cross-check international luggage, I missed my connection to Brasil and ended up in Miami for the night.

This room should have been the hight of luxury after 6 weeks of dorms (the receptionist actually apologised that there wasn´t a king size bed, just two doubles!). Unfortunately I arrived at 1am, having been directed from pillar to post with backpack in toe throughout Miami airport and not having eaten in 12 hours. I spent most the night anxious that my new flight arrived in Sao Paulo, not at 9am as planned, but at 9pm when it would be dark and I had no accommodation reserved and don´t speak the language.
