The Alamo, originally known as Mission San Antonio de Valero, is a former Roman Catholic mission and fortress compound, now a museum. It's a story of defiance by a group of 189 men that stood in defense at the old mission against the army of 4000 merciless Mexicans. The Mexican laid seige on the Alamo for 13days. The defenders were all killed in the final assault on the garrison. One of them was my childhood hero, Davy Crockett. Since then, the cry "Remember the Alamo!" became the rallying point of the Texas Revolution. As I stood on the hallowed ground of the fortress compound, the echoes of the thunderous past engulf me with impetus tenacity. I could hear it in my mind, the roar of canons and smelled the gunpower from the muskets rounds. I was totally spellbound by the atmosphere at The Alamo.
As we have been away from home for a little while now, we began to crave for some familiar food. So we sat down at a food court and ordered chinese fast food, BIG MISTAKE! I never knew before that day, that anyone could screw up a chinese meal as bad as that; it's sacrilegious! But we did get our sustenance, and that's that. We slept like babies that night.
