Seeing the activity inside BG Place makes me feel all good!

Love the different vantage points. Never seen a bust of a woman before.

Even though I've never been, Houston reminds me a LOT of Los Angeles. But it's such a interesting and weird looking city. I need to visit one day.

I go to school at Prairie View A&M. Which is in Prairie View, TX (50 miles from Houston). If you haven't heard of either before, I wouldn't be surprised. Nothing to do here, so on my weekends, I get out and explore things.

Several people have made this point here and in other urban forums. Houston in many ways is a smaller, younger version of Los Angeles with a geographical setting that's more Florida than California. It and El Paso are Texas' two most exceptional major cities, IMO. The cities along I-35, while each unique in their own way, represent the core of Texas.

Houston is sure building 5 story apartment complexes like LA!

I love Houston and always enjoy seeing more pictures. Wonderful city with a lot to do, great culture and museums, restaurants of all kinds, nice climate (even in the summer), beautiful vegetation and the most hospitable people.

Houston always looks awesome and it does resemble LA in a way.

The area around the New Dynamo Stadium... kinda reminds me of West 7th back home, only bigger and more urban.























Trippy....








The stadium, almost done...
