We had a great time in Houston.
Thank you to Dean & Lindsay for their hospitality. They were expert tour guides of the city. We visited museums, NASA and Galveston – managed to pack a lot into a quick trip. I was impressed with Houston – several people had given me some negative views on the city (before I went), but overall I found it to be quite nice! The museum district is beautiful with giant oak trees towering over the streets. The city is huge with an enormous freeway system; it would be very intimidating if I’d had to drive. There are hundreds of restaurants and no lack of things to do. I ate fish tacos, drank wine, ate steak stuffed poblano peppers, drank more wine, had a outrageously good bbq salmon with dill sauce, drank a little more wine, a shrimp po’or boy with wine; it went on like this for several days! A very memorable time was had by all!
I’m going to have to walk quite a few miles to burn off these vacation calories!
I finished “A Thousand Splendid Suns” and started “Three Cups of Tea” (by Greg Mortenson) while in Houston so I will have a new book review and a new movie review up very soon (hopefully, before Wednesday).
Keep checking in!
