First thing in the morning, we head over to Mosaic Church of Central Arkansas, where we had the priviledge of supporting WashU's all-male a capella group the Stereotypes. They're also touring Texas, but they're going on the reverse route that we are, so we can only see them in Little Rock. It was fun because one of the soloists is from Little Rock and attends Mosaic. As always, the Stypes were amazing!
Afterwards, we checked out of the hotel and headed to River Market for lunch and ate at the Flying Fish. SO MUCH SEAFOOD! We ordered fried calamari, four catfish filets, and a basket of oysters and shrimp, which came with fries and hush puppies. All of this was just for $10/person. Very solid restaurant, I highly recommend it.
Then came the longest leg of the drive: an 8 hour drive from Little Rock to Houston. We shared our life stories and pondered the meaning of "Why did the chicken cross the road?" and figured there was a deeper meaning of the chicken crossing over into the afterlife. Little did we know, it would foreshadow our drive later, when our car saw a small curly haired dog run across the highway into our lane. We were in the fast lane with the wall on our left and another car on our right, so we couldn't do anything about it and ran over the dog. It was slightly traumatic, but now we ask, "Why did the dog cross the road?"
Finally after arriving in Houston, we grabbed pho for dinner at Tau Bay. The meatballs were very tendon-y, and the soup base was very different than that of Mai Lee's. It was pretty good, but I think I still prefer Mai Lee's.
Overall, it was a pretty exciting day, and I'm learning more about the people I'm road tripping with :)
