This day started very early. We started the trip at 6 AM from Ruston. The estimated driving time to Dallas is 4 hrs. My friend Jaime had arrived to Monroe the day before, after some delays due to weather. We had dinner at Ryan's and we were ready to hit the road towards Big D! The weather has not really helped. These days have been cold, misty and with eventual showers or light rain. We stopped at Shreveport's Ihop for breakfast, my all-time favorite breakfast restaurant.

When we arrived to Dallas we went straight to the Dallas Heritance Park. It is a small village with preserved architecture from the XIX century. The tour was lovely and we could take many pictures at the old-west buildings. The view from the Dallas skyline is awesome from there. Then, we headed to the Dallas World Aquarium, the exhibitions were fun and I got to see many sea life species I hadn't seen before. We had lunch in the aquarium, I ordered a ceviche that ended up being wonderful.

Then we went back to the hotel for a bit of rest and headed to Medieval Times. The show was great and I did have a lot of fun, it is really something you must see if you are ever in Dallas. I won't repeat here what I said in the review.

At the end, I was totally exhausted but we still went to see the impressive Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, the site for U2's concert! I was really impresed and mesmerized, but when I get to see the inside I think I will be even more! I will let you guys know!
