First stop, Dallas

Dallas, United States

I am never flying economy again.

After a very crowded flight from Melbourne to LA, I tranferred to a very crowded AA flight to Dallas.

Dan met me at the baggage carousel (ater I forgot, and wandered around the gate lounge for 5 minutes looking for him). So exciting!

We went straight to meet up with Dan's family. Yep, after 27 hours flying, sweating and in the same clothes, that's exactly what I was hoping to do. Lol! Only kidding - what a lovely family. I got presents!

Friends Brad and Sandy arrived, and we drove an hour or so to Southern Junction, a Texas Steak joint.

I will paint a picture - these were the suggested activities of the evening by the girl behind the counter: cook your own steak and then ride on the bucking bull, while watching Texan rednecks in their natural habitat.

Ok. The last bit was in my words.

Seriously, the most incredible introduction to a city I have ever had!!!

Quote of the day : "So you, me and my Mom are going to Hooters tomorrow"
