Yep. That's city life in the South. Very good representation of how it is. It's funny how in places like Houston that get real hot in the summer, life kind of seems to slow down. Around here when people feel summer coming on everyone starts to get really aggravated and into a "wait until it's over" mode. Almost the exact opposite of what I've seen living up North.

The city does not look very inviting. But thanks for showing.

From the pics, it looks like a mix between Corpus Christi and San Antonio times 10
