Day 7

Location: Bryan, TX

Catalina, Jon, and myself drove to Houston this morning and we had a great time down there. We first spent some time at the Houston Zoo, which was enjoyable, especially considering the last time I was at a zoo was in the 7th grade. The only drawback was the heat - 110 degrees today.


After the zoo, we went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science which kept us busy for a few hours - we saw a planetarium show, a special exhibit on butterflies, and most of the regular exhibits which included dinosaurs...a personal favorite of mine.

We then spent some time in the nearby enormous mall, got some dinner, and then headed back to Bryan. Jon and Catalina were extremely generous - not allowing to let me pay for anything, as they claimed all of these things were early birthday gifts.

As nice as it is to be here, I have to get back on the road tomorrow. It will probably take a 9-10 hour drive to get to Big Bend National Park which is in the Texas "panhandle." (I was previously mistaken as to which part of Texas is actually the panhandle)

Fortunately it won't be long until the next time I see these two - they will be up in Endwell next month for my brother Brendan's wedding.

What a great stay.
