Me at the Alamo

The trip to San Antonio was the first I did in 2009. I attended an engineering event with collegues from school. It was nice, because I had wanted to visit the city for some time. It was the second-to-last major city in Texas I still had to visit (the last one was Austin, which I visited later in 2010).

We stayed at a hotel downtown, which was very convenient because it was a walking distance to El Alamo. Visiting there was fun, as it was the famous site where the Mexican army defeated the Texan rebels turing the Texan Independence War. But of course, everybody knows the rest of the story; the army of the inept Mexican president Santa Anna was surprised later in San Jacinto and forced to surrender. And so Texas gained their independence from Mexico.

I also loved the River Walk, it's a really neat place to spend an evening.

We just had a couple of days, but it was really cool to see one of the most emblematic cities of the Mexican-American simbyosis.
