Texas Comentários

I live in Corsicana, about thirty-six miles north of Tehuacana. I drove down there with a camera to photograph the old college building. Even in its present state, it is quite impressive. The building seems to be in great shape considering its age. The clock tower is on the ground and is in very bad shape. Hope someone is able to restore it before the elements take an irreversible toll on it. It was worth the drive and time invested on that March day.
I grew up in Tehuacana. I think it's funny that there is a hostel there. This is a small Texas town witha population of 307. There is a post office, a park, and there used to be a store. Also Trinity Institute is where Westminster College used to be and is supposedly haunted. That's about it, but it's a great place to just hang out.
This is the most unusual place to find a hostel. Tehuacana is not even printed on most maps, as it is tucked way way back from any major highway and hidden between huge rolling texas ranchlands that look exactly like the paintings. There is nothing to do in this town other than go on long walks or sit in the old cemetary which and watch the amazing sunsets. This place is extremely peaceful. Quite possibly one of the quietest and most serene spots in Texas.
Be sure to visit Kemah -- off Highway 146 midway between Galveston and Houston -- for great on-the-water dining and peoplewatching. If you love boating, you'll love the parade of boats of all kinds heading out into the bay.
I grew up 8 miles south of Dawson in what was once the El Dorado community. We owned a 241 acre blackland farm. One can see "Tehuacana Hill" from my old farm. The bluebonnets are spectacular in the spring there!
The nightlife in Austin is mostly centered downtown on 6th Street, starting at Red River Street and going west from there. If you find that 6th Street isn't your style, try the alternative music spots along Red River Street, or for the older crowd try the Warehouse District on 4th and 5th Streets, roughly between Guadalupe and Congress Streets.
