San Antonio sights

2009 June 19

Here’s the view from our shipper’s dock in San Antonio. This is actually what I was staring at when the action in the following post started. Cool old abandoned building, huh? At least I hope it’s abandoned.

    OK, cool picture, BUT….

    WE WERE JUST IN SAN ANTONIO PROBABLY THE EXACT SAME TIME YOU WERE!!!!

    I swear, one of these days, I’m going to meet the two of you…even if I have to stalk you around the country (cause I can do that, you know).

    Neat! I wonder what it used to be. And why the windows are so big!

    Except for approx. 6 months (various automotive shutdowns) I have driven through San Antonio every week for the last 6.75 years and at least once a month James and I swear we’re going to take a weekend off and explore the city. Like you said it has some scurvy areas but what large city doesn’t?

    Salena,

    Good luck picking us out of the 273,859 other TWMNBN trucks. :)

    Chaos,

    Stace thinks they are so big because the building was probably built before lighting was easily available so the huge windows let in more sunlight. More light = easier to work the peeons’ fingers to the bone. I don’t know how they exploited the poor workers on cloudy days. :)

    Gabby,

    I have a mental list of all the places I would like to explore at my leisure.

    Scurvy areas aren’t at all a negative in my view. In lots of ways I find them much more interesting than the fancy-pants cookie-cutter areas of a city that ends up on postcards.

    MongolianGirl,

    Thanks, it was a really cool old building. I have to admit that San Antonio is one of the countless cities that fall into the camp of “only visited to pick-up or deliver a load then got the hell out of town.” But it’s on my explore-list. Only in the dead middle of winter though cause that heat they have down there… that’s just wrong.
