When I come to Texas I stay with different friends and family. I've learned a week is max because no matter how hard one tries to be inconspicuous, another person impacts another person's space. So, I'll be moving to my fourth place.
Hence I'm moving on to be near downtown Houston manana en la manana. I'll be "inside the loop" as Houstonians like to describe it. The place I stay is magnificent with views from the 19th floor of downtown, Memorial Park and Buffalo Bayou. No, no buffaloes ever roamed there that I'm aware of.
I'm always awed by how treed Houston is and by the amount of wildlife that inhabits the bayou. It's only a 10 minute drive to downtown but it feels like you're in the country IF you don't look at the traffic on Memorial Drive.
Since my friend is part of the culinary world, as I once was, we have much in common along with many friends in common. So, until I leave for Denver next week, I'll be up in my aerie peering down at wildlife............and humanity and dining at some of my favorite restaurants, I'm sure.
