His sister and brother-in-law were wonderful hosts. They cooked us a healthy breakfast. I thought it was weird that whenever Binh's sister mentioned the word "rain" – the drizzling outside intensified. This happened three times, which freaked me out a little. I'd like to think that we brought the rain to the drought-stricken area -- it poured mercilessly for nearly 14 hours. As a result, I didn’t get to see downtown Houston or Daisy Duke chicks in cowboy hats and boots. The rain confined me to the City of South Houston.
In the middle of the pouring rain, Binh drove us to a sports bar called The Mezzanine Lounge to chill and rendezvous with Nancy and her friend, Nelly; I met Nancy in January 2010 while hosting an extended get-way weekend in Colorado
In the late evening we went to a Vietnamese bar to meet some new friends and toasted some drinks. I didn’t drink much…at most I took a few sips. One of our mutual friends over did it with the alcohol consumption; the business establishment should have not sold it to him, but they were in it for the money and didn’t care; each of those bottle cost about $50+. The Asian policeman who sat at the bar for hours, eating food, and watching TV kept to himself. There seemed to be a something "fishy" about that arrangement.
