Houston, We Have A Problem

Your downtown area is charming. Your Whole Foods fully stocked with dairy alternatives and rows of beautiful produce. However your drivers are the spawn of Boston and Greater Los Angeles, combining hair-raising lane changes and lack of signals with high speeds. Not what I wanted to navigate at the end of a seven hour drive, dying from terminal menstruation while my three year-old screamed for his musical Thomas toothbrush.

Thankfully Galveston is much lower key. Here’s to a couple of days of rest, relaxation and walking everywhere we need to go.

The Gulf of Mexico framed by roof construction next to our hotel. Not the most scenic of shots, but it sure beats Jersey barriers and squealing brakes.

  1. oh Houston. I remember a business trip there when pregnant with Viv-we got lost because the two “elder” persons wouldn’t listen to me, and we ended up in a VERY unsavory part of town to be in at 2am. Then we became trapped in the seven circles of hell they call their freeways.

    ick.

    Galveston is MUCH nicer.

  2. Yeeg. Houston. The Featureless Saint interned there for a few months and it was awful. Never, ever again. Never.

  3. LOL! I grew up there so I totally know what you are talking about. 🙂 It has only gotten worse now that there are twice as many freeways. Hopefully you didn’t have to stay long!
