We didn’t have much on the agenda for today. We woke up a little later than usual, packed up everything, checked out of the hotel, loaded the car, and took off back down I-35 to San Antonio.
And well, we ended up back at Mi Tierra. Yes, again.
One more lunch. One more taste of authentic Mexican deliciousness before heading back to the land on which we live (which happens to be the land of awesome pizza, subs, and bagels, if you must know).
And in case you didn’t believe me when I told you that it looks like Christmas exploded inside of Mi Tierra, check out the section where we ate today:
Amazing, isn’t it? We ate in the bar area last time, and this is the diner/restaurant area that we didn’t see before. Knowing what I know now, I’m glad we got to experience both!
After another amazing meal, we picked up a couple more empanadas from the bakery to enjoy during our travels home. Then we essentially killed the rest of our time by walking around downtown San Antonio and doing a little shopping. It was pretty uneventful in terms of landmarks and photo opportunities, so I don’t have much else to share.
Before leaving, we got to experience one more example of the ass-backwards operations of the San Antonio Airport. We could not, for the life of us, find the rental car return. I can certainly say we’ve never had that problem anywhere else, as there are usually signs everywhere and it’s pretty easy. Not here. Nope. We circled the airport twice before we finally dug out the stinking address and had to plug it into our GPS.
But after that, everything else went smoothly, and we (once again) appreciated on-time flights.
We had a great little visit in Texas. There was much to love (especially the food). We think the amount of time we spent there was pretty perfect, so if you’re thinking of a trip–all you really need is a few days.
It’s good to be home.
AboutI'm Heather. I just turned 30. I'm happily married, and mommy to the most beautiful little girl in the world (what, you're saying I could be biased?). Determined DIYer and homeowner. Sarcastic. A perfectionist. A bleeding-heart liberal. Frugal. Loves a little dog way more than many humans. Loves food, hates exercise (it's an ongoing battle). A loyal football fan. I love to laugh. Value family and friends above all else. Vie to be a world traveler.
