I have to come back to San Antonio. I’m really interested in United States history, so imagine my elation when I got to the hotel and discovered that we were directly across the street from the Alamo.
As in, I could see into the fort from our second-floor room. As in, if the windows opened, I could lob something across the street and it’d land within the walls of the Alamo. I called my dad to tell him about it, and I think he was just as excited as I was.
Later that night, I wandered around the city after our event and went to the River Walk area. River Walk is this section of town that’s below street level and has restaurants lining the San Antonio river (but it’s really like a canal). The area is lit up with dim lighting, and it’s got a very romantic feel. It reminded me of what I’d envision Venice to look like.
