Where I stayed
Actually, although we all decided we would much rather stick to the highways in the future, we did enjoy the journey through smalltown America. We stopped along the way when a tiny town looked promising for food and/or clean facilities, not knowing when the next opportunity would come. Mike and Jenny got particularly excited at the sight of fresh fruit in a small grocery store on the edge of town!
Our favourite place was a small farming community called Matador
After a long day (and much crossing of legs), we arrived at our hotel. Hmmm, I thought, it's not looking as nice as I remember from the internet. Put it this way, you'd stay there if you were very desperate. I looked round nervously and the others had a polite smile on their faces. We approached the reception with trepidation only to let out big sighs of relief when we realised that there was another Super 8 down the road - we were in the wrong hotel. Phew! We hot-footed it to our new Super Duper 8 motel which had just recently been opened and was wonderful.
In the evening, we ventured into the quiet streets of Downtown Lubbock, where all the people seemed to congregate in a lively bar and grill called Three J's.
Tomorrow the Buddy Holly Museum!
