Free time in Dallas

This post is a little out of order. The first night in town we had a little free time to explore Dallas. I say free time but we were looking for somewhere that was open to eat.

Our trip to the east of the hotel revealed Our Lady of Guadalupe.

This church is the main church for the downtown area. Downtown Dallas is very different from what we are used to. There is very little residential homes where we are staying and as a result the diocese only has 2 services on Sunday (9 and 11).

Approaching the church we could hear a drum circle. It turns out Sunday at 7 is the Hispanic mass. After the members get together outside the church and dance.

We did end up finding somewhere to eat. On the walk back to the hotel I snapped this picture. Dallas has numerous buildings with lights running the length and various configurations.

Still more to come.
