Visit to San Antonio: The Alamo

Visit to San Antonio: The Alamo

>At 7.30 a.m. on Wednesday 13th October I got into a taxi and was driven to Bristol Airport to catch a plane to Newark Airport and from there to fly to San Antonio in Texas. A taxi at the Airport took me to my hotel and bed.

After a good nights sleep in spite of the 6 hour change time. I had breakfast and enquired how to get to the Alamo and what else they would advise me to see. I was given a map and told that I could walk to the Alamo. I set off and just before reaching the Alamo found a shop where I purchased a nice jacket.

Visit To The Alamo

I was invited to get an audio commentary. I did so and was guided around it.

History of the Alamo

What the Alamo is remembered for is the fall in 1836. We were told that this was only one battles which took place and lead to it and the rest of Texas leaving the control of Mexico and becoming part of the USA.

I spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon there and then walked back to my hotel. Another place I was advised to go was the River Walk and told that it was a nice place to eat. I took this advice and had a nice meal in very pleasant place. I then returned to my hotel and met others attending the conference in the bar.

More of this in a later post. The next one will be a review of a program I have recently joined. Now we say Goodbye to the Alamo.
