Wednesday April 25 continued
I ended up at the Spanish Governor’s palace. Built in the early 1700’s, this was actually the home of a local aristocrat and not the governor
Some rooms have been added on over the years.
Some say the house is haunted. I didn’t see or feel anything, so I couldn’t tell you for sure.
The Courtyard is very pretty.
I then decided to join in on the sights and sounds of fiesta.
There were plenty of concession stands however I was still too full to try anything
As I headed towards the Mercado, Lots of live bands playing the locally popular Tejano Music
Basically downtown was just hopping
I did stop at the touristy (some might say tourist trap) Mi Tierra just to take a look inside
I thought about getting something from the bakery but was more in the mood for ice cream- it was 96 degrees and humid!
As I went back outsdie, I could hear 80’s dance music coming from a boom box- I turned around and saw a crowd standing around this cretin of a guy – playing air guitar and bopping around to the music- truly one of the oddest things I saw on the trip
I then continued on the Riverwalk again, walking across downtown back to my hotel when I saw a sign of relief
Right on the riverwalk- I walked in- they had some real interesting flavors,
However for some reason, I decided to go with this.
Cream Cheese and Jelly- it was actually very good- and actually tasted like cream cheese with a jelly filling.
It still wasn’t the best ice cream of the trip- that’s 3 chapters away.
After spending most of the day walking, I rested up a bit at my hotel to prepare for…more walking…
About a mile and a half north of downtown in a neighborhood referred locally as the “gayborhood” there’s
a burger stand that’s been around forever.
