Miami, Ocean Drive

One of the old cars parked in front of the Casablanca hotel on the Ocean Drive, Miami.

The southern tip of Miami Beach Island is home to the Art Deco National Historic District. Ocean Drive is a strip of hotels with characteristic rounded corners, vivid colors ( mainly blue and yellow ) and geometric ornamentation.
The hotels were completed in the 1920's but
Ocean Drive soon became associated with liquor and gambling ( Al Capone was a frequent guest here ). Then much of the Art Deco district had become a slum but it experienced an unprecedented revival in the late 80's which some partially attribute to the success of the TV show "Miami Vice."

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I started take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct companion who uses your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:
