Dallas, Texas

This past week I was stuck in Dallas, for work. Not exactly high on my list of places to visit, but hey, it's done with. I was hoping for some nice warm and sunny weather - but that didn't really work out at all. I got tornadoes, thunderstorms and flash flooding instead. Welcome to Texas I guess.

The only thing interesting that I got to do (besides checking out Dallas' wonderful malls...) was to head downtown to the site of the Kennedy Assassination. Now, I'm too young to remember the actual event - a little before my time, but it was a big deal, and I was in Dallas... so I figured I should check it out.

The old Texas School Book Depository, since renamed, now has a small museum on the 6th and 7th floors. They've recreated the scene where Oswald "apparently" shot President Kennedy from. I found it interesting that the official source for this, the museum, uses the term "apparently" to describe it. I thought it was only conspiracy nuts that still were on the whole other shooter bit. Ah well, like I said, before my time. Anyways, I snapped a couple of pictures of the building, the "Grassy Knoll" and the monument the erected, a couple of blocks away.

I was glad I went, but it didn't really make much of an impact on me.
