At the Fountain Place

This was going to be the last day in Dallas and I had to take Jaime touring the downtown area. Our first stop was the White Rock Lake, taking advantage that Mother Nature gave us some time without rain. The lake is nice and beautiful, and we enjoyed taking a walk there. Unfortunately we saw there was a lot of thrash by the lakeshore, probably residues of weekend barbecues in the area. Then we went walking by the downtown and taking photos by the usual Dallas landmarks like the Reinassance Tower and Fountain Place. We also went to the Pioneers Square which is usually visited by a lot of mexican people.

Another interesting point of our visit was the Sixth Floor Museum, which is the Old Texas Schoolbook Depository from where President Kennedy was shot. The museum features a great photo collection of President Kennedy and you can take a view from very close to the window that he was shut from. There is also a great photo collection from Bob H. Jackson in the seventh floor including his great shot of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald. The picture was truly impressive. I can't describe the feeling of watching a shot of a man losing his life. We also visited the Old Red Courthouse and the JFK memorial before having lunch at Quiznos.
