5 hours in Houston
We had a night bus from Austin to New Orleans with a stop in Houston
So we tried to make the most of it, walking down Main Street to Downtown
Although, knowing that it was about to get dark, we needed to eat, and we had big rucksacks, the amount we could do was pretty limited
Trusty Yelp recommended this place, and it looked pretty cool
It was lit up at the front and looked a little like a Tiki hut
They had a happy hour with $5 wine
And a Yelp deal that you could get $30 worth of food for $20
I opted for the Veggie Curry and Jack for the Pirie Pirie Chicken
Both were really good!
In the dark, with no idea where to go, it’s not ideal
We walked along to the water, and then realised it looked like the gathering place for homeless people
So very quickly just turned around and headed back to find a bar
A busy little bar
With beer and banana pudding
That was enough to keep me occupied for a couple more hours!
We had planned on spending a night in Houston to break up the travel between Austin and New Orleans
That was mostly just so we could go to the space centre
I now feel like it was probably a better idea to just have a brief stop!
