Road Day: 75
I spent my whole day in Houston's big beautiful park - Buffalo Bayou. Seriously, Houston and these parks - I'm all agog! If I was forced to live in a city, I would pick Houston. (I know Stuart is technically a city, but you know what I mean - a REAL city.)
I started my time there at the Kitchen at Dunlavy, which is part of the park - honestly, I said that last night's queso was the best ever. The burger I had today was the. best. ever. Hands down. So juicy. So flavorful. Yet so simple. I cannot explain how much I loved it. I try not to talk about food too often, but Houston has been really so good for me, food-wise. After lunch, I worked by a little pond in the park by the restaurant.
After work, I moved to the other end of the park to take a tour of The Cistern - Houston's original...water system? I thought I would learn more, but the tour was actually a super duper cool light art installation. It was spooky and a little transcendental. I loved it!
I then took a hot, sweaty walk around the park utilizing the "Kinder Footpath" whenever I could to avoid the runners and bikes. (Bicyclists somehow manage to be so nervewracking to both drivers AND pedestrians. Like a dog off a leash.)
Houston is cool. Houston likes trees and art and kind messages and good food. I like Houston. It took me a minute, but now that I've been here 6 days, I see that there is a lot more that I'd love to do. (And a lot more places to look for Jose)
