But I need a haircut and need to find a new place in SA. Anybody know someplace, or should I just ask Satel's?

Be careful Steve, haircuts can be bad for your health (nutrient leaching occurs). l will post some info soon. Best to let it grow long.

P.S: l don't practise what l preach here, l cut my hair.

P.S.S: make sure you top up with extra vitamins & minerals for a week after you have cut your hair.

I do try to get them as little as possible while still remaining presentable.

This is a bit of a tangent, but I visited San Antonio for the first time this weekend and was very pleasantly surprised at how nice a city it is. We moved to Houston 9 months ago from the Northeast and we are still acclimating (it is a most "unique" city
). We decided to visit San Antonio this weekend and were completely won over by the Riverwalk area. The humidity was much less oppressive than Houston's, and the general pace of life seemed slower and more sedate. We also enjoyed visiting the Alamo (smaller than what I imagined) in addition to the other former Spanish missions in the area. It was a lovely weekend and while I can't recommend where to get a good haircut, I certainly found a few places that make a great margarita.

Yeah, San Antonio is nice. I've been there on pleasure and business trips. Always had a great time.

Indeed, Houston is oppressively humid. It's a hugely industrial place. Oil, gas, and chemical plants everywhere. Where Houston is very blue-collar, Dallas is extremely white-collar. Definitely take a visit to Dallas sometime. It's like Houston in that it's very corporate -- lots of headquarters -- but it's more organized and more classy. You won't see many cowboy hats and boots in Dallas.

Finally, Austin is most definitely worth a trip. It's the most liberal city in Texas and a lot of fun. Beautiful hill country and lakes. Lots of University of Texas babes. Great BBQ too. I went to college in Dallas (SMU), but spent my weekends down in Austin having fun. It was always worth the three hour drive down I-35...

More organized, yes (in an oppressive, cookie-cutter sort of way). Classier, no.

Well, in many ways you are right. One way being the arts -- Houston has Dallas beat there.

After the Getty Museum in the People's Republic of California (
), the Kimball Museum in Ft. Worth has the largest endowment in the country. Houston has some excellent museums and galleries. All the oil and gas pumped out of the ground over the years has bought a lot of art and brought it to Texas. The Dallas Museum of Art sucks, IMO, and the staff and its patrons are far too snooty for their own good.

In fairness to Houston, it has a large museum district with a fairly dense cluster of buildings housing all varieties of artistic, historical, and scientific collections. Additionally, there is a theater district that is second only to New York's in terms of quality/number of venues and total seating capacity. I also think that the choice of restaurants in this city might be the most extensive I have experienced in the US. The truth is, Houston is a very culturally diverse, cosmopolitan city and has tremendous potential. Unfortunately, it does suffer from a few very particular problems (but I guess that can be said about any city, really).
