Still Texas

Strolling along Dallas you will certainly feel very specific atmosphere of the old times. The city is full of many different monuments and statues. My favourite object is located near Pioneer Plaza which is several dozen copper bulls and cows that are to remind the times where the city was a centre of bulls gathering and the favourite place of cowboys.

Another place that everybody who’s visiting Dallas should see is the famous Thanks-Giving Square. This place is a kind of international spot where people of all cultures, nationalities, colours, religions meet and hang out together. Unfortunately, I have chosen the worst possible time for this trip. I didn’t predicted Dallas may be so hot in this time. The temperature almost all the time was reaching 78F! To me, that was hell! But most of the day I spent in the car on the road heading for Mineral Wells. The place is known for its medicine properties.

Anyways, the city is often called “The Crazy Waters”. So obviously, I have bought a bottle of the local mineral water. But this was not only the mineral wealth the interested me, the place used to be a home of such stars like Clark Gable, Judy Garland and many different equally important people from tv. Coming back to Dallas, the best of the city is that there is no problem with finding an accommodation.

Apparently, it is even famous for a huge number of hotels and hostels. Many of them are really expensive, but I managed to find very cheap one, in a great localisation providing really good conditions! So yeah, going to Dallas doesn’t have to be very expensive, but only if you plan your trip in details. I did it, so I didn’t need to worry that something’s gonna surprise me. Everything was worked out.
