Houston back to Yale

Back in Houston, we spent the afternoon downtown at Discovery Green before heading to the Menil Collection and Rothko Chapel. Disclaimer: most of the following photos are taken from Alex's album.

In the evening, to round out our Texas experience, we headed to Reliant Stadium for the Houston Rodeo and the Band Perry.

The next day we spent some time at the Galleria, had dinner with the parentals at Brenner's, and then visited the Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens for their 'Sip and Stroll' event through Ima Hogg's 1920s estate grounds.

Later that night: Wild West and Howl at the Moon. Nothing quite as gratifying as witnessing a Turk learn how to two-step.

And for the survivors, a late-night visit to my favorite spot in downtown Houston (though the fog obscured the view of most of the skyline):

Back to New Haven tomorrow!
