Subject: RE: happy? - Mar 6 (the Alamo, remember?)
I was there in January. I enjoyed my trip to San Antonio. I found the people very friendly. It was a good experience being inside the Alamo and I spoke with one of the custodians at length. She belonged to the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. I also found it interesting from my perspective that nine Irishmen fell at the battle of the Alamo and that about forty people present at the final battle were directly of Irish descent.
