2011-01-05 AIA conference, San Antonio. You might think, looking at these pictures, that we never attended any conference sessions. Not true! I just can't remember any of them. But we did go on an extended walk upstream, along the canal to the art museum. This has a room with some choice antiquities, nicely presented. So we did our classical due diligence, after all. The rest of our free time, we spend walking the city: visiting The Alamo, and strolling the canal banks which provide an extensive network of clubs and eateries. The canal system is under renovation. But this doesn't seem to deter the strollers and restaurant patrons. The weather in January is good, even shirt sleeves at times. The city's atmosphere is South-west-ish with a suggestion of Latin America. Except for high-rise hotels and a few large office buildings, the architecture is on a more human scale than many larger cites. A branch of the main canal.
