Had a good time in San Antonio. We were staying in the Holiday Inn, a bit upscale for meant to be backpackers, but we've been using a site called priceline to get cheap deals. This one cost us 15 quid each, which ain't bad. In some places its actually cheaper than hostels....

The main areas to San Antonio are Market Sqaure, the riverfront and the alamo. Market Sqaure is full of mexican indoor markets - the mexican equivalent of the forge market - if you've ever been there in Glasgow

The Riverfront was really nice, lots of shops, hotels, bars and restaurants have been built around the river running through san antonio, they've also added man made canals to the river system aswell. Looked pretty similar to amsterdam. Did a tour in a boat, which was pretty good.

Went to the alamo afterwards, an old fort made famous in the movies. Was interesting, turns out 4 scottish died there, including a McGregor. So the Americans lost even with a McGregor on their side - this mexican army must have been pretty good!

Fionas still not been feeling to good, so we went back to the hospital, this time for only a 2 hour wait. Shes was given anti biotics, so hopefully that'll help her.

Fiona was feeling a bit tired so went to her bed, after countless hours looking for a hooters I ended up going to the cinema and watched Saw 2. Really good, but even more shocking that the first one! Jamie - u'll love it!
