- The rumour that I was in Dallas as the young love interest in the new Dallas series was not true. I was asked but I declined.
- I am writing my blog in at least four installments because we did so much so this installment is just about Dallas.
- You all know that I am far to big to travel and used to send Leroy instead. However, I have now found a way to travel as little Kolo, about 1/4 my normal size.
I thoroughly recommend enchilladas, black beans and nachos. This was not the last TexMex feast I had in Texas but the only one I got pictures of as I was far too hungry to bother with photography the other times.
Then we went back to the airport to pick up Monkey's friend (and now mine and Leroy's friend) S, (@stufftedart).
The next day, after an enormous breakfast of French toast that I didn't photograph because I was too hungry to bother with that, we went to the Dallas arboretum and saw an exhibition of art as well as plants.
In the arboretum I had the chance to do some tree climbing, well I am a baboon after all.
We also managed to take part in a real Texas adventure!
It was very hot and humid that day, as a result of Hurrican Isaac, so after some walking and climbing we went to the wonderful Highland Pharmacy for a drink.
Its a wonderful sofa fountain, I loved it. By the way when I say drink I mean iced tea.
The next day we went for breakfast and I had banana pancakes. Look at this, what baboon or other primate could resist this!!!
After that we dropped @stuffart at the airport and went off to Austin and San Antonio. I will write about that separately.
When we got back to Dallas we had more adventures.
While celebrating Arsenal's victory over Liverpool, at Norma's diner, I learned a very important piece of information. Look at the menu, it says 'Life is Short, Eat Dessert First'! Remember that folks its there in red and white so it must be true. Just look at those desserts (puddings to us Brits of course).
The next day I learned something else important about diet. At a cafe we saw on Sunday it said that a balanced diet is a cookie in each hand. Another important fact.
Well talking of desserts or puddings, everything is bigger in Texas and Leroy found a carrot cake that was bigger than he is.
Just look at that!!
Well eventually we had to reluctantly leave Dallas. It was Labour Day, sorry I mean Labor Day! Leroy and I found a flag that was just the right size for us.
We are patriotic Americans after all!!!
Well off we went and flew to Boston, but that is another story, or actually a number of other stories. Next installment will be my trip to Austin.
Thanks for reading. HUGS HUGS HUGS
