Very nice photos in this last post!! One of them even reminded me a bit of Miami, I suppose because of the palm trees.

I love Houston.

By the way... I don't recognize that last shot... where is that exactly? Is that near the Bush Airport?

Very nice pictures, Greens! I love Houston, and really enjoy seeing pictures from around different areas of the city. :D

That picture was taken around Uptown, you can see Williams Tower popping up over the trees in the far right of the picture. I think the highway in the picture is the Southwest Freeway, or HW. 59, but I'm not sure. It was under contruction when I was last summer.

Surely that can't be Hwy. 59? I know it's been 4 years since I was down that way, but that doesn't look anything like I remember it...

I'm not sure, but I didn't think I was on I-610 when we were going through the part of the highway that had been completed. I guess we'll have to wait for Greens to set us strait. ;)

Yeah, who knows. Like I said... it's been 4 years since I've been down there. I would have gone through their last year had I gone to San Antonio for my anniversary, but we went to your hometown instead. :)

Oh that's no excuse! Houston's just a few miles outside of New Orleans, you could've easily went just a little bit further south-west before you came over here! :P

The last photo is the Southwest Freeway (59) near Montrose. It is still under construction and has been for a while.

Wow! It looks so different than it did some 4 years ago. And I got to look at it for hours as I sat on the side of the road waiting for a friend from Houston to come help me out after my transmission kicked the bucket.

Shut up, NCB... I don't want to hear "I told you so."

Yea, everytime I go to Houston, it seems like everything has changed. New buildings, new highways, larger populations everywhere around the area, etc. It's just a very progressive city.

Shut up, NCB... I don't want to hear "I told you so."

Well...fine then.

True. It's an amazing city and I'm glad to have it in the south.

Well...fine then.
