Our next Pit Stop was Historic San Antonio, Texas.  To get there, we need to travel 400km south-west down Interstate 35.  Halfway to San Antonio, we detour to "Live Music Capital of the World", also the state capital of Texas, Austin.  We drove through the renown, 6th street to purchase some souvenirs.  Then we stop at the Capitol Building for photo ops.  Taller than the US Capitol, the Texas State Capitol and Capitol Grounds are one of the most popular tourist attractions in the capital of Texas and a favorite spot for the locals as well.

We made another scheduled detour about 60km before reaching San Antonio.  As if our budget wasn't stretched far enough, this time we stopped at Tanger and Prime Factory Outlet Store (2 outlets in 1 place) at San Marco, Texas.  And as usual, Ling the magnificent bargain hunter, managed to get a couple of Coach handbags at dirt-cheap price.  What will I do without a shopping whizz like Ling.

We had lunch at Cracker Barrel in Tanger; and yes!, you guess it, catfish again! Yum!

Finally, with all distractions and temptations out of the way, we set our sight on making it to San Antonio without further ado.
