So, we finally make it to Texas, and, of course, what does Tia find?
You guessed it! The most flamboyant bull in the entirety of this huge state. So, here she is truly taking the "bull by the horns". There are actually three "horns" in this picture, can you find the third?
This is in the middle of the Medical Plaza. It's a beautiful area and if you're gonna be sick, this is the place to do it. From a distance it looks like downtown with all the buildings, but really it's a bunch of hospitals in the same place. If you don't like how you're treated, you can literally walk to across the street to a different hospital.

We decided to go for a walk in Memorial Park, (or Hermann Park, I can never remember which is which). It was a beautiful park to accentuate this great looking park. Here is a mini Washington Monument with a reflection pond to go with it.

In the park, here is the Japanese garden (actually just a bit of it). May I remind you, this is in the middle of the city? Incredibly serene and peaceful. There's a crane somewhere in the background there that wouldn't cooperate, despite my best efforts. We would've loved one of those crane pictures with its wings all spread ready for flight, instead it decided to step out of the shot.

That's the Medical Center in the background. Quite grandiose, don't you think? The Houston Zoo is on the left side of the picture, and out of the shot to the right is the Museum of Natural Science. We have to hit ALL that before venturing out of our immediate area... hopefully we can get it all done. Stay tuned.
