We really liked San Antonio. It's got a lot of history happening with the Alamo and the Republic of Texas or whatever. I was even getting caught up in it and I'm no history buff. We walked all over the downtown, checking stuff out. It was real easy to get around. They seem to have their shit together here for the tourists. We felt like we saw a lot in just one day. The downtown is built over this River Walk, which I later learned, is the San Antonio river. You can, basically, walk across the whole downtown area using this path.
We were only here for a short time so we tried to cover the basics. We checked out the Alamo.
We ate lunch at a place called Dicks. They call it that cuz they, the staff, "acts" like dicks to you and makes fun of you while you grin and laugh about it. Kind of weird but pretty fun still. I asked our waitress if we can talk shit back to her and she said that would be OK but I would probably not be able to keep up.
It's hot and raining as hurricane Alex approaches. We're forced to bail on our plans of checking out the Texas golf coast due to the high winds and buckets of rain forecast in the next few days. We'll save it for another trip and cut out toward Louisiana tomorrow.
