Florida's Coral Gables: So near, yet so far
CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Although I was not able to take the family to a foreign country this time around, Coral Gables, just southwest of Miami, proved itself a fair substitute. People stepping into shops and restaurants would start with Spanish without any apparent concern about being understood, and I needed the help of the kind shopper standing behind me at a Walgreens in order to communicate with the cashier.
