The Real Texas

4.20.2010 177

Eddy and I recently traveled to San Antonio--the REAL Texas! We currently live in Houston--land of the strip malls--so we were delighted to hear people speak with a drawl, see loads of cowboy boots and pass trucks that look like they're actually used for hauling things.

We loved the river walk area for walking around. Here's an hilarious postcard of the river walk:

Actually, the river is more filled with ducks and ducklings than cattle.

We had a little trouble finding decent Mexican food (appalling!), so we gorged at Schilo's German Delicatessen

and Green Vegetarian Cuisine.

We of course remembered the Alamo:

We also went to Fiesta. In Houston, "Fiesta" is Spanish for "grocery store." In San Antonio, Fiesta is a city-wide event with parades, pageants, competitions, live music and lots of drinking in the streets.

Here I am pretending to pose so that we could get a picture of this hilarious hat:

and here's some Fiesta fare--fruit that they cover in cayenne pepper and salt before serving.

Here's a link to the rest of our San Antonio pictures.
