I had some AMAZING hosts to make my stay at Houston extra-special.
The number one thing that stood out most during my stay in Houston were the restaurants. SO MANY RESTAURANTS. By the end of my stay, my friends were probably sick of me mentioning how many damn restaurants there were. It was nuts how many there were. So nuts, that I decided to do some investigation in the matter: it turns out that Houstonians eat out more than residents of any other city. Ridiculous.
I guess the good thing to learn was that the food was actually good. And not just 'good-good', but David approved good. I like to think my standards are set higher than your average koala. Some of the more memorable establishments included Torchy's Tacos, Niko Niko's Greek & American Diner, Fadi's Mediterranean Grill, Ruggles Green and Churrascos.
Jessie and Jemillie told the server it was my birthday at Churrascos Restaurant... so I could get a free show and flambéed tres leches cake. This is me pretending to be surprised.
Museum of Fine Arts, Contemporary Arts Museum.
The Light Inside. A blue tunnel connecting two museums... surreal.
Jessie had a hankering for some bike riding around Rice University. I never was too fond of bikes until I bought a motorcycle, so I was doing my best to not run into people, sidewalks and parked cars.
NASA Space Center
Presidential Heads + The Beatles (this was located in a random location. almost an industrial business center)
Beer Can House. Yes, this man covered his house with beer cans. When asked why he did it, his response was, "It was something to do." Good enough.
Random pics: a gigantic armadillo, a painting and scary lady thinga-ma-bob.
