San Antonio

We took the bus into downtown San Antonio to explore the famous river walk.  We went by the courthouse and then to the cathedral where a funeral was just wrapping up.  It was a beautiful building outside and in.  Next we went to the market square where there are a bunch of little Mexican shops.  I thought for sure I could score some of my favorite Mexican candy Pulparindo.  The first time you eat pulparindo you are certain that someone is playing a trick on you…surely nobody would purposefully make something that tastes so nasty.  The 2nd time you try it you are just mad at yourself for trying it again.  But by the 3rd time you’ll be hooked on it!  To my disappointment, nobody had it or seemed to know where I could score some of this strange but delicious treat.  We stopped along the river walk to eat our brown bag lunch then went off in search of the Alamo.  On the way back to catch the bus we decided to splurge on some Ben and Jerry’s since we had 2 for 1 coupons…even with those, its crazy expensive.  My favorite was The Tonight Dough starring Jimmy Fallon….peanut butter in chocolate ice cream is the best.

We asked 3 different people where to catch the 42 bus before we got someone who actually knew.  It was an uneventful ride back to the campground and once there the kids quickly changed into their swimsuits to play in the pool.

The San Antonio we saw was definitely for tourists…not my favorite.  But it was nice to be outside, with my family and exploring something new.
