San Antonio

You would have seen this city in the movie “Miss Congeniality” with Sandra Bullock. It is about three hours away from Houston driving due west and is a really unusual place to visit. We love this city.

It is not a typical of American city. The city is very romantic. The River Walk (Paseo Del Rio) is 20 feet below street level and steps from the famed Alamo. Aside the meandering San Antonio River, stone pathways connect shops, restaurants, hotels and museums with a blend of historic and modern architecture that resonates the depth of this centuries-old metropolis. Among these walkways, commerce meets culture with the sounds of mariachis serenading diners and river taxis carrying guests across the spring-fed river that has attracted people to this region for centuries.

We had spent less than 5 hours in San Antonio last January. It was far from enough but we had a wonderful time. Walking through the river, visiting the Alamo and we can feel the beauty of this city.

At the end, the dinner was so good, hot and spicy from very nice Spanish Restaurant close to the river. Hot chocolate and vegetarian buritos for me and amazing size of beef steak for him 🙂
