Houston and San Antonio, Texas "Houston, we have a problem" "Remember the Alamo"
We arrived in stressful Houston traffic Sunday night at Gina Nuccio's fancy apartment. We went to a popular Texan restaraunt called Pappasitos. We all shared some delicious fajitas with all the fresh tortillas we wanted. The next day we went to Nasa Space Center's Rocket Park. We saw a huge rocket that took up a whole building! We also found a house from the 80's that had been decorated completely using beer cans, from the fence with beer top links, to the floor with concrete slabs and beer can depressions. It was quite interesting. The wind blew and the beer can chimes almost sounded kind of pretty. Then we said our goodbyes to the lovely Gina and headed west to find The Alamo. The Alamo is located in San Antonio, Texas. We walked around the Alamo museum and watched a 15 minute history channel movie. All the buildings were really old and cool. We also went on a river walk, which was pretty much the coolest thing I've ever seen in a big city. It was lined with concrete but had lots of cool bridges and restaraunts along it.
