  •  I lived in Houston for about 10 years and I really (5+ / 0-)

    miss the areas I lived in when I was there and the friends I made.... the Medical District, River Oaks, Montrose....and I really liked visiting San Antonio for vacations.

    I really think it was the people I met, more than the actual "State" itself that I miss... I met so many neat people from so many different walks of life, (I worked at the medical center at the U T SPH doing my post-doc and then doing research) so I admit my time there was not 'normal' I guess but spending Sunday's in Chinatown and the like....sigh, I just miss it.

    I'll tell you what justice is. Justice is a knee in the gut from the floor on the chin at night sneaky with a knife brought up down on the magazine of a battleship sandbagged underhanded in the dark without a word of warning.

      The urban areas of Texas are way more diverse and dynamic than outsiders imagine. Tons of really, really smart people here, but without a lot of the attitude you might find in "fancier" cities. And Houston has one of the best restaurant scenes in the country. By "scene", I don't mean just trendy stuff, but excellent, solid restaurants of every stripe. If I lived in Houston, I don't think I'd ever cook at home. Montrose and The Heights are really fun neighborhoods.
