I've been through Texas a few times, but I've never stayed in Houston.
I love Texas. Iowa is a complete s^hole compared to central or eastern Texas. Down there the weather is superior, the people are of greater character, and the food is better. Even the fast food joints in Texas sell significantly bigger and tastier burgers.
