San Antonio

We spent a few days in San Antonio with our favorite cousins, as has become a tradition. We were there last in 2005.

We visited the very interesting Institute of Texan Cultures and found a section about Swedes who immigrated to Texas.

Dilapidated

As all over the world, Texas also has "mature" buildings that have seen better days. Louie likes to take pictures of them, and here is his collection.
