Tough days on the road

We have had a couple of tough road days. Getting out of New Orleans with all the construction work going on in the wake of hurricane Katrina is in itself a challenge. On top of that a truck accident had happened on Interstate 10 which closed all the westbound lanes down. We sat stuck there in a h u g e line for over 3 hours and didn’t put in a lot of mileage that day. We had to stay overnight in Lake Charles, Louisiana as none of us are that fond of driving in the dark. Here we are with Paradox sitting stuck.

How did that Roman chariot end up on Interstate 10?

Entering the state of Texas – oil country

The first bad weather on this journey came today. Rain, fog, thunder, lightning. Here is Houston emerging in the mist

Just thought the top of this Houston building was cool – looking like a crown.

The ramps and freeways around Houston look ┬álike something a spaceship could land on. In spite of the rainstorm we made it to Dripping Springs, Texas where we are staying in a way overpriced hotel because there is a music festival going on in nearby Austin. We are here to hook up with Ross’ longtime friend Marvin who is a sculptor living a little outside of Dripping Springs. The plan was to have dinner together. But Dripping Springs was actually dripping so much that the arroyos out by Marvin were overflowing so he couldn’t get out! We hope he can make it for breakfast tomorrow.
