Today’s driving was through Tennessee, Arkansas and onto Texas. There was not much to report about the drive itself, except that once we got to Arkansas we drove through several hours of rain and thunderstorms.
Partway through the drive, we popped in the Eskimo Brothers CD, only to be somewhat disappointed with their taste in lyrics and the fact that they basically dissed country music on CD. Weird, very weird.
Somewhere in Arkansas, we saw a roadside restaurant on fire and many fire trucks racing to the scene. Later we drove over the Mighty Mississippi River, which was neat.
When we arrived to Arlington (after some traffic through Dallas) we checked in to the Holiday Inn, which we discovered was built 2 and half years ago when the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium was built. When we got to our very nice room, we looked out the window and could see the Rangers Ballpark and the Cowboy’s stadium, which was cool.
We headed to the Sports Bar that was connected to our hotel and ate dinner with a particularly chatty waiter Daniel. As we were eating we were watching the Red Sox annihilate the Rangers on TV, it was great!
After the game, we headed back to our room to go to bed.
