Some random photos around Houston

A rather insignificant thread, sorry to disappoint you. I was on a day trip to see the Terra Cotta Warriors at the Houston Museum of Natural Science in the Houston Museum District, so I didn't have much time to go around the city.
The Houston Museum District was surprisingly urban, I felt it was more alive than Downtown Houston on the weekend. There are many broad tree lined corridors that made it feel like I was in Central London for the day. I was really impressed. The only places in Houston that I went to before were the major highways, Downtown, and the suburbs towards Sugar Land. Now I understand furthermore why Houston is classified as a 'world city'.
(P.S., to Houstonians, all of the suburban office towers along I-10 from Katy into the city are impressive. I saw several ultra modern office buildings under construction)

















The statue is Sam Houston, whom the city is named after
