I love exploring new areas. Even if it’s an area where I totally can’t relate to. To me, that’s the beauty - seeing and experiencing the differences.
But I came across a few tidbits about Dallas. The following are all quotes from guide books I got from their visitors center. I find it interesting that they pride themselves of excess.
“Dallas is all about superlatives: the biggest steaks, the most luxurious diamonds, the largest endowments, the most magnificent mansions, the most social socialites – if it’s not excess, then it’s just not Dallas.”
“Dallas prides itself as being built on Ambition, Arrogance and One-Upmanship.”
“Mega-bucks aren’t enough in Dallas. It’s your civic duty to flaunt them.”
-On a different note-
I spent Saturday in Fort Worth. The best part was going to the Cowgirl Museum. I originally thought it was going to be hokey. But happily, I was wrong. It was awesome. I love any experience that honors women and their tenacity.
