I made it to Houston last night without any problems. The flights were smooth and on-time (not bad for Friday the 13th!!), and Omer picked me up at the airport. From there we did some grocery shopping, bought dinner, and went to his condo to eat. I was exhausted, and did not stay awake long past dinner.
Today Omer has to go to a wedding and to his school to take a test, so I will be hanging out here in the condo on my own for most of the day. I don't mind - I need a day to rest and plan out the week. We do have plans to go to Austin and San Antonio, but do not have the days worked out yet for those excursions. My goal on this trip is to take some nice photos of these three cities, as it has been over a decade since I was last in San Antonio or Austin. It will bring back a lot of memories for me.
When I was a young kid, my grandparents, who spent half their lives traveling around the country in a trailer, used to spend a lot of time in San Antonio in the winter months, so I would visit them there often during my school vacations and such. I fell in love with the city, and always had a lot of fun. I'm curious to see what has changed and what has stayed the same since my last visit (which I think was back in 1992).
Well, Omer has just discovered his car battery is dead, so it's off to find someone who can jump it for him. There is much more to come!
