A Walk to Lunch

This week I am conducting a course in a hotel in Dallas. This means a long day of class in a windowless meeting room, so it was nice to take a walk to lunch.

Walk to Lunch, Dallas, River Walk, Love Field, Embassy SuitesThe hotel is just north of Love Field and is near Bachman Branch and Bachman Lake. Here you can see the Bachman Branch which is one of the minor tributaries of the Trinity River. There is a nice walkway between the hotel and a group of restaurants, including where we ate today and also a Chick-fil-A.

I had a dish that had a beef and chicken enchilada and a pork tamale. A beautiful plate and very delicious. Mi Camino is a new restaurant that has only been open since last year. Each of my students had different dishes and they all looked very nice. They all enjoyed their meals so I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

I liked this little courtyard that had a fountain and also some beautiful foliage. I really like the colorful blossoms on the tree. Unfortunately the courtyard was in the shadows. I may have to walk by late tomorrow afternoon to see if the courtyard is lit up by the sun.

Now to get some sleep to help chase the jet lag away.
