Houston we have landed

by Jorge Sanchez - 2 years, 7 months ago

I have never paid too much attention to Houston. I had crossed two times that city in my way from Florida to Mexico, hitchhiking, but I better resolved to stopp for 2 days in San Antonio to visit El Alamo and the Spanish missions, because I love historic cities, and Houston dates only from 1836, date that for an European, living in a Spanish city over 2000 years old, Houston is no so interesting in terms of History.But the third time I stayed for half a day in Houston because my bus to Brownsville, at the border, and then Matamoros, was in the evening.So I walked around the city. I knew that there was a monument devoted to the Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca, who spend over 7 years crossing on foot the south of today USA until the Gulf of California, from 1528 to 1536, but I was not able to find it.The downtowns in USA cities are all the same; they look each other. I do not like them. You need a car to move around in USA big cities, therefore I only walked near Greyhound bus station.Late in the afternoon I caught my bus to Matamoros, Mexico, and then a few hours later I headed to Veracruz
