Horse Capital of the World
Lexington, Kentucky is considered as the Horse Capital of the World. But it has nothing to do with my visit just hours ago. I had to buy a Greyhound bus ticket from Austin to Houston on July 18 to visit a "kababayan" after a company event and that's it. I relied everything to GPS and I did not create an itinerary of places to visit.
GPS estimated a 30-ish minutes to reach the city. Most of the time was spent travelling along a freeway (US 64). I definitely had a blast with my wet hands overtaking other vehicles and running 80 mph. The ticket purchase lasted only a minute and the accidental tourist in me was just looking for the nearest Asian restaurant when I landed to a nice Thai diner called Taste of Thai. I like their Pad Thai except that it's too sweet for me. I finished the big serving anyway. The attendant who came from Laos made a correct guess on my nationality. She said that she's got lots of Asian friends.
I stayed and explored the city (as in "city!") for another 30 minutes before getting back to the paid parking area and headed back to Frankfort where a truckload of home work is waiting.
