Dark Moth Posted December 4, 2005 Share Posted December 4, 2005 (edited) In case some of you happened to notice, I wasn't active these last few days as I was on a trip to San Antonio. (I know, I'm sure you all missed me) Despite the crappy hotel room, I had a great time for the most part. The entire purpose of the trip though was to see my sister's graduation from the air force. She just finished basic training, is now an Airmen 1st Class, and will ship off to tech school very soon. She also graduated in the Honor Roll in her squadron, which is pretty impressive considering the privelege was only given to less than 10% of her graduating squadron. :D So now, she's offically part of the Air Force. Though her tech school is long, we'll at least get to see her during Christmas. And since she's part of the reserve, there's only a very small chance she'll actually have to go to Iraq (thankfully). :ph34r: *end bragging* Some things San Antonio taught me were: 1. The Alamo is pretty small, though a lot of the original fort is gone. Also, they don't let you take pictures inside either. Strangely enough, there's no basement. 2. Most Texans actually don't walk around in cowboy hats and boots! Though there were a lot of Hispanics, as I suspected. 3. It's not all desert! The place actually has trees and grass! OMG!!! 4. The Riverwalk is a very nice and picturesque tour. 5. Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum is not worth $18 per person, though there was some neat stuff in it. 6. There are a lot of birds down there, at least during winter. :ph34r: 7. Buckhorn Museum is a pretty neat place, especially the occasional "freak of nature" they have displayed here and there, such as a three-antlered buck. There was also this one section which displayed weird taxidermist creations, such as a crocodile head on a fish's body.
