Welcome to Sunny Houston! ~ Wednesday, January 31, 2007

Or rather, welcome to cloudy and 7 degrees celsius Houston. it was raining when we landed, so this marks an improvement. But still, after minus 10 or so temperatures, this is actually rather pleasant. I am typing this from the hotel "business center" workstation. It a slow connection, but I guess one can't really expect otherwise. They do offer wireless for free and a number of other amenities. In fact, I'd say it's generally a nice place. Plus, there's free breakfast, which I always like, since that means that we can stop downstairs, eat and then get on with our day with minimal side-trips once we're out the door (no need to stop somewhere or do a drive through or whatever). Also, it's a breakfast buffet, so that means one at least generally has some measure of control over what sort of choices one makes in the morning.

All in all, not half bad! There's also a pool and a fitness centre, so that's nice, esp. since Houston doesn't seem much of a city for walking in. Of course, I don't think I'll be doing much walking tonight. I have a headache for some reason (might just have been how I was sitting on the plane) and am generally achy.

We went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. Lupe Tortilla or something. It wasn't bad--very much of a "for white folks' consumption" kind of place. The menu had items like "cheekin enchilalada". In fact, they never spelled it "chicken". It also always used the words "con" and "y" in place of "with" and "and." The food was pretty good but it was still kind of strange bing in such a "for white folk" kind of environment.
