howdy y'all! hows it going?

well we arrived here in Houston at 5.45am this morning! yuck- for once our train was on time which sucked as obviously no buses were running to get us to our hostel and we are too poor for a taxi so i had to sleep till 8am in the station with the tramps wrapped in a sleeping bag! nice.

so in san antonio we went to see the alamo which ben loved but i was rather bored!!! i guess it was quite cool.

lastnite we went to a rodeo and it was so cool!! ive neva seen anythin like it! we arrived at 4 and walked around looking at the animals and shops and stuff- ben brought a revolting skunk skin- its so horrible i wont touch it. freak.

anyway at 7 the rodeo started and they had this dead funny opening ceremony. as soon as every1 saw the US flag they all got up n took of their hats (obviously cowboy hats cuz they dress as cowboys or like sum1 out of dallas with no shame). so these horses ran around with the texan and US flag and then this guy sung the 'star spangled banner' and the crowd went mad weneva he said a particaulrly cheesy bit. me n ben felt so stupid standing there! then they did a prayer to look after their troops and the cowboys performing tonight?! weird.

then it began, i thought it wud b out doors like the rodeo marilyn goes to in 'bus stop' but it was in a really posh arena like the ice arena but better. they had steer (baby bulls) wrestling- where a grown man threw himself off his horse onto a cow and basically rolled around with it. steer roping- catching them with ropes. sometimes they got away n i liked that!

they had the bronc riding which was scary! they have to stay on for 8 seconds and are judged on technique- how they can have technique when they are being tossed around like a rag doll i dunno! then they had the bull riding- which was just stupid cuz they were huge and i was sure sum1 wud get stomped to death!!! i got really into it! i dunno how they make th animals buck tho- they like have a thing around their waist which makes them do it- weird.

they were meant to have mutton busting- sheep racing but they didnt i was gutted cuz i wanted to see if sheepboy was there. who remembers sheepboy?

so that was the rodeo.

the pics are crap cuz its blurry!

but i finally got pictures on-look!!!!

think we r going to the space centre tomorrow! guess whos idea that is!!!

n im goin to visit miss patel on the 19th! yay cant wait!!!!

anyway love u all lots looking forward to seeing y'all!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
