I am in San Antonio for a few days at an engineering educators conference, so I’m experimenting with using my iPod Touch to post an entry. The flight was $500 cheaper if I came Saturday instead of Sunday, so I came a day early.
Met a guy on the plane who lives in the hill country about a 45-minute drive northwest of town. He gave me tips on what to see, so I spent yesterday afternoon sightseeing. I did the Riverwalk boat tour and visited the Alamo. Ate Tex-Mex, as recommended, at a particularly pretty spot on the Riverwalk, where I had pork tacos with cilantro and onions and the best margarita I’ve ever tasted.
My airplane buddy also told me to keep a lookout for Phil Collins when I was at the Alamo, and I did indeed catch a glimpse of the famous singer . . . sort of. More about that later this week, when I’m able to write using an actual keyboard!
