We rolled into the unsuspecting city around 630 am Monday. After watching the warm Texas Sunrise from our rented condo we retired for a few hours rest after our lengthy travel.
The afternoon led us to the main drag of showcase row. We indulged in exotic food and got our bearings amongst the other early-arrivals. We took in a freak show at the Lucky Lizard and saw a sword swallower gag as he slipped two 20-inch blades down his throat.
As daylight descended, the streets swelled with hundreds of people. Madness everywhere. We did our best to contribute to the wild atmosphere..
Carry your phone charger on you at all times. It could just save you from sleeping under a tree when you wander off and get lost.
Now that it is 3pm, we are almost ready to roll back out into sunny streets.
Day 2 will surely be lived by lessons learned.
