Third day here

Dallas, United States

We had breakfast at a place calld La Peep - specialising in eggs benedict. There was a queue out the front and I can tell you why! Great food, wonderful restaurant and lovely company, including my new friend Karen, who I had lots of giggles with!

Afterwards, I had an appointment with J Paddock & Son Texan Car Tours, and we went around some amazing areas looking at the MASSIVE mansions that are in Dallas. Really, they are phenomenal. We say man-made lakes, train tracks, moats and waterfalls galore!

The touring continuted, and we saw a synagogue, a school and a supermarket - all of them quite different from home and very interesting (photos to follow at home).

Central Market was a cross betwenn the quality and presentation of Leos, with the user-friendly food options of BaySwiss for the busy or culinary-challenged, but with about 50 times more options of every product!

We also stopped at South Fork Ranch, where the TV series 'Dallas' was set. No Ellie-May in sight. (Is that name even right? I think I might be the only person in the world that hasn't seen it).

Dinner was a fantastic chinese restaurant called Howard Wangs - thanks for the shout Dad!

I thought you were meant to be studying the Dallas DVD en route to the US of A? Did you peak to early with the free in-flight booze?
