Argentines Turn Cash Into Condos in Miami

Argentines Turn Cash Into Condos in Miami - NYTimes.com: "Economic and political uncertainty around the globe are benefitting real estate in the United States, especially in Miami and New York, the two “safe haven” American cities foreign investors usually look to first. South Florida’s real estate market is certainly no stranger to capital flight from Latin America. But the velocity at which some Argentines are investing in Miami real estate has shocked some brokers here. “The desperation of the Argentine people has taken over and they are actually market leaders here now,” Ms. Sanchez said. “Any project today in Miami is probably being sold 50 percent to the Argentines.”"

La Virgen de la Caridad Anniversary Celebrated in Miami - NYTimes.com: " . . . A replica of the statue, 16 inches tall, had been smuggled out of the island that day by a refugee with political asylum papers. It had boarded the plane with him in a blue carry-on case, after first bouncing from a carpenter’s workshop to a private Havana house to the Italian Embassy to the Panamanian Embassy and finally to the stadium.“She is an exile, like us,” said Regina Guttiérez, a retired schoolteacher who left Cuba for Miami in 1970 and attended the festivities. “Our prayers to her from here were always about freedom.” The Virgin’s official residence is her shrine in Miami, completed in 1973 on church-donated land on the bay with the coins and dollars of new Cuban arrivals. Auxiliary bishop Agustín Román, the community’s spiritual leader who died this year, would haul “huge sacks of pennies” to the bank, said Julio Estorino, a journalist and longtime church volunteer. “Back then it was just us,” he said. “We washed dishes. The first hour every day we were paid, we donated to build La Ermita.” It has been more than 400 years since an image of the Virgin Mary is said to have first appeared to three Cuban farmers caught in a three-day maelstrom on the Bay of Nipe off Cuba. The men prayed for calm and, just after the storm cleared, something bobbed their way. It was a figure of the Virgin Mary, bone dry, atop a board, with a sign that proclaimed, “Yo Soy La Virgen de la Caridad” — “I am the Virgin of Charity.” On her right arm, she carried Jesus; in her left hand, she clutched a gold cross. The men brought her back to Cuba, where a shrine, now a national sanctuary, was built for her in El Cobre in Santiago de Cuba, an area abundant with cobre, or copper.
