Today, we gonna go to dah airport, so Bibi she say we gotta see a couple more places.  I'm kinna tired, but maybe I can sleep onna plane!

Two places people gotta see when dey come-a to San Antonio:  dah River Walk, an' of course dah Alamo!  Itsa inna middle of downtown San Antonio, an' alla dese tall buildings kinda make it looka small.  But inside dah walls-a, itsa very nice and shady, wit' lotsa trees older dan dis country!  Altogedder, dere are 5 missions in dah county, an' dey follow dah river sout' from dah Alamo.  We only had time to visit one of dah odder ones--Mission Concepcion.   Itsa dah biggest one, an' lotsa history dere!

We also see dah San Antonio Library.  Itsa kinda famous, too, because a dah color.  Itsa called "Enchilada Red".  Luigi never see a red library before!  Our last stop was onna dah way back to Bibi's house.  We didn' have time for dah' zoo, or dah Botanical Gardens, but we did see a place called-a "Japanese Tea Garden".  A long time ago, somebody got dah idea to make somet'in' outta a old rock quarry.  Itsa very pretty, lotsa flowers, an' walkways an' bridges, an' iffa you look down-a, you see all kin'a goldfish, just swimmin' aroun', some little ones, an' some 4 feet long!   Luigi t'ink dey are called "koi".

I gotta go now, Peeps,  I gotta finish wit' dah packin'.  I go to see Johanna, next.

Ciao!  
Of course, The Alamo!

Chef Luigi, what great travels you are having! I am glad that you got to see so many wonderful places in San Antonio. Who would have known that there was a red library? It is so fun the things that you see and learn along the way! Thanks for the great pictures, Bibi!
