St Louis, Houston

We have enjoyed a couple of days in St Louis, Gateway to the West. It is the crossing point on the Mississippi for the westward expansion of the US. They have a massive archway to symbolise the gateway, and an underground museum - which at least had the benefit of air conditioning on another HOT day. It is also where the World Fair and Olympics were held in 1904, and there are still great (and free) Art museum, History museum and Zoo - underwater views of swimming hippos were my high point. We have flown to Houston and are now feeling very much at home staying with David's brother - enjoying the opportunity to sit, read, listen to music and relax - a lot more weather here - torrential rain and thunderstorms!
