Waking after a restful night, we looked out of the window and things seemed to be getting back to normal. Today, we decided to have a rest around the pool before heading out into the city and it was nice to have the full area to ourselves.
After looking around downtown the day before, we decided to head to a Graffiti park which proved to be situated in a slightly run down area but we enjoyed wandering around photographing the artwork.
When walking around town, we had noticed a range of sculptures and artwork and the city seemed to be making an effort to add to these; particularly on Maine street.
It did seem strange that a major city like this did not seem to have a City Art Gallery and not many private ones. Houston, we realised was more of a commercial city, where work was the main focus and only in the parks did we see any family life.
We did eventually find the underground walkways, where you could move around out of the heat, but unlike many other cities, there wasn't much for tourists to do; with the main attraction, the Space Centre being well out of town.
Although a surprise, we still had several places to visit and it had given us a chance to aclimatise.
