Day 3 October 18th2009
I leave the hotel very early today before breakfast around 6am or so. I set the GPS for the address of my hotel in San Antonio. I head off the road and venture onto I 35 which would be my main route to San Antonio. I good ride in the vehicle, the tunes are on to the local country music stations. It is a good drive all the way to San Antonio, I keep going and its hard to explain the drive. Really not much to say about the drive. I pass through a few communities from Waco and Austin Texas.
After a few hours I make a quick bathroom stop outside of San Antonio.
The Battle of the Alamo (February 23 â�� March 6, 1836) was a pivotal point in the Texas Revolution. Following a twelve-day siege, Mexican troops under the President of Mexico General Antonio LÃ³pez de Santa Anna launched an assault on the Alamo Mission in San Antonio de BÃ©xar (modern-day San Antonio, Texas).
I then go to a nice Irish Pub here for a later Lunch. I go have some Texan Lonestar beer and a burger. It is one of the best burgers I have eaten and watch NFL on TV at same time.
After lunch I make my way walking around the River walk. Its is very neat. Here is a list of some of the things I went to see that day.
2. The River walk
3. The McNay Museum of Art
4. The Tower Life Building
5. Bexar County courthouse
6. San Antonio Public Library
7. The Tower of the Americas at night
8. The Alamo
I walk around this exciting place and take in all the historical areas of this fine city. It can be a bit rough out of the main tourist areas, but overall worth checking out.
There are no words to describe the excitement of this area. I will show you the goods through photos, as picture can tell you a 1000 words.
Anyways that is what I did in the day time.
In the evening I ended up going back to the Riverwalk area and went for some Wings and Beer at the Hooters by the river. Good place to hang on a quite Sunday night.
I then head back to my motel and decide it will be early start in the morning.
During the night I could not get any sleep .
I decide around at 5 am to leave this place as I had enough, I go to check out. On check out at the front desk. The funniest thing happens, the guy working the front desk is Mexican. Now I am not trying to offend anyone here. The Mexican guy name on his Nametag was actually Taco. Very funny. Anyways I check out that morning and check out my blog for the next day. Stay Tuned!
