Volleyball Tournament or JFK

We slept in this morning, after a full night in Dallas.  Jake thought Dallas was great; our hotel was full of hordes of teenage girls running around in bathing suits and more screaming and giggling girls throughout the city.   Jake thought Dallas might be a great place to go to school and was researching universities until we found out there was a national volleyball tournament in town for the weekend and it was not always like this.  Still I had a hard time convincing him I could not change our flights to Mexico.

We did get a chance to see book repository famous 6th floor window, the grassy knoll, the fence and even a tour from a local (not sure if he was a guide or bum… this could be a blog all to itself).

We ended up sitting outside eating two great rib-eye steaks and listening to a great Roca-A-Billy band before calling it a night.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
