A Texan Cattle Drive

I drove down to Dallas to visit my buddy Rodion from my SIUE days. Good times were had.

We went to the The Sixth Floor Museum which is in the book depository building that Kennedy was shot from. Especially chilling was looking out the sniper's window and seeing the streets below looking very similar to how they did back then. They were pretty nazi with their no pictures policy, so you'll just have to trust me that it was cool.

We then went to Dallas' mysterious sibling, Fort Worth.

The Forth Worth Stock Yards were a pretty darn solid tourist attraction. I felt like it had a good mix of history and touristy tackiness.

This giant building that looked like it used to be stables or something had been converted into a cool maze of shops.

There was what looked to be a Southeastern Asian tv show being filmed. I imagine I'm famous somewhere.

The Stock Yards' biggest draw is the daily mini cattle drive that goes through town. It was funny because the Asian tv show kept getting yelled at by the cattle drive staff for standing in the street. The show must go on I suppose.
