Here, I was on the street level, a flight of steps up from the River Walk. This sculpture is called the Torch of Friendship, which symbolized the NAFTA bond among Mexico, the United States, and Canada. The artist, Sebastian, gives an interesting interview of his work on the Torch of Friendship here.
Here I am, in front of the historic Alamo! If you look in the upper right hand corner, you will see a neon green sign that reads “Crockett Hotel,” named after the famous David “Davy” Crockett, a frontiersman, politician, and defender of the Alamo. (See Battle of the Alamo.)
