I would love to visit the US (and indeed Canada) but have no
foreseeable plans to do so. I am sure it's going to happen, though.
So many exciting places, I wouldn't know which coast to start with at
the moment. I know I've got to see New York and Central Park, L.A. and
Hollywood but the wish list is really endless... I'll be daydreaming
all day now.
I hope you do get to visit the USA some time. You
can enjoy some of the same things we do. Mugging,
road rage, agressive drivers, home invasions,
excess taxation, and all the other pleasures of
Tom Lehrer sang about that, so many years ago.
You have to see those places (especially LA, which is wonderful), but
don't ignore Texas. Austin is the cultural as well as political capital,
but there's history at San Antonio and the phenomenon of the JFK
assassination industry at Dallas.
Personally, I think Texas should be first on anyone's list :)
Austin is worth going to so one can see the millions of bats emerging
from under the Congress Street bridge. It's quite a spectacle. Then
there is almost something going on in Austin :)
The drive from Dallas to Lubbock (along state route 82) was an
eye-opener too, mainly due to the distances involved.
I assumed I'd be able to get fuel just about anywhere. But about
half-way along 82, the GPS was telling me that the nearest filling
station was further in front of me than I had enough fuel for.
I was saved from ignominious grovelling to the car rental company by a
general store (the real old-fashioned thing) in a place called Guthrie,
which had two pumps around the side.
Never so glad to see a fuel pump...
On Route 82 travelling west, I had the definitive answer: this IS the
way to Amarillo.
I think you'd enjoy it, although there is a lot to see and do. A friend
of mine from upstate New York visited me once, down on the gulf coast
where I lived. He wanted to see where the movie The Alamo was filmed,
so off we went to Bracketville.
