Once we crossed the border into Texas we made for the first big city on I-10: Houston! Houston is a huge, sprawling city surrounded by huge highways, but there’s plenty of charm and things to see. In our day in Houston, we visited Rice University, Bellaire Street (the Asian-town!) the Galleria shopping center, and finally Kemah Boardwalk. It took a lot of driving but we saw a ton.
Our first stop was Rice University. I know, I know, I’m done with my undergraduate degrees and I’m off to grad school in a few weeks, but I love doing the USA college tour! It’s never to late to wander a campus 😉
This glass lunch pavillion was lovely. It reminded me of the famous Philip Johnson glass house.
The library shelves were so pretty. I could sit in libraries for days on end, flipping through books and snuggling into the comfy chairs. Sometimes I think school libraries are going to be the last hurrah for print books.
Yes. Rice has a really pretty campus.
