then comes Dallas
Here we are - in Dallas! Now, this was one of the highlights of the trip TO Calif. Big city. Stuff to do. But we were getting tired, even by this point, so we just stopped at the first mall we saw from the highway. Very nice one. And we came across a French cafe restaurant called La Madeline's (sp?) which I've been to in New Orleans once. I knew there was another in Washington, DC but didn't know it was a chain beyond that. Lovely, lovely restaurant that has now become Mayu's favorite, and easily her favorite restaurant on the trip. She adored that almond cross. you see above. That potato soup there was the bee's knees as well. Luckily on the way back we found another one in Houston, so Mayu found heaven twice. We're thinking about driving to New Orleans once this summer too, so she'll get to visit the Original one of these days.
