Finally we arrived in the state, we always wanted to see: TEXAS!
And we started with the biggest city of Texas: Houston. Everyone told us not to go there and that there is nothing to see. So we were more than surprised, that this city has something to offer too, at least to some “Swissies”.
We enjoyed the beautiful skyline in Downtown Houston, the Discovery Green city park including an ice skating field and admired the big waterfall wall at Williams tower. In addition, we visited one of the noble suburbs of Houston; The Woodlands. Also the big shopping mall “the Galleria” in Uptown Houston is nice to look at and of course fun to shop in 🙂 .
Less fun is the traffic! As you see on the picture below, you have 10 lines going into the same direction and several layers of highways on bridges over and under you. Just impressive… but very hard to drive for us 😦 .

Enormous street structure.. 10 lines in 1 direction.. several layers of more roads..

Shopping Center The Galleria (again including an ice skating paradise)
Only quality shops and a waterway to walk, framed with restaurants to sit outside and the most elegant houses in noble quarters:
