Itsa 'nodder fine-a day in-a Bibi's neighborhood!  Im'a gonna pack-a my bags, today, but first-a, I wanna tell you about-a my visit, here in dis-a fine city! 

San Antonio is not-a like Milano, or Paris, or Philadelphia, or San Francisco--itsa spread out all over dah county, so dah buildings, dey not-a very tall.  'An I t'ink dere's bigger rivers, but maybe ever'body so proud because dah rivers, dey are RARE in sout' Texas.  Anyway, Bibi, she keep-a me runnin' so I can see everyt'ing.  We had lunch at a  place-a called "The Cove", and Luigi t'inks itsa so strange dat a restaurant is also a car wash anna place for people to wash-a deir clothes!  But, I unnerstan' dat a very famous chef-a, named Guy Fieri, came wit' his television show.  Dey have lotsa locally grown-a, organic food-a, an' dey have bison burgers, an' lamb burgers, an' hundreds of beers from all over dah world!  Bibi she share me some of dah bison burger--mamma mia, itsa good!  Like beef-a, but-a not so much-a fat!  Anodder day we had lunch-a at a fine place called "Paesano's", where dah Fettucini Alfredo was to dah moon!  My brodder Alfredo would be so proud! 

Ever'body dat comes-a to San Antonio, dey go to dah River Walk, an' I see why!  Itsa shady an' cool, an' dere's lotsa great places to eat, drink an' listen to some fine music.  Amazing dat nobody fall inna dah river!  Bibi she take me to see dah home-a dah San Antonio Opera, but-a dey inna rehearsal, so I not hear dem--too bad!  An' I wish I could show you inside dah Majestic Theatre.  Itsa remind me of Venezia on a starry night, ahhh I'ma little homesick for Italia!

Looks like you have been busy. I glad, because of all the food you ate in LV you needed to lose a few pounds, and it looks like you have ;)
