My 85 year old mother was born in San Antonio. I have The Alamo in my blood.
It's the only place I've visited for a modelling job X-mas 1991. It was really bugging me, I couldn't think of the name of the hotel we stayed in so I've just spent ages looking through my attaché case full of all my modelling (pic) books, and memorabilia. While I couldn't find the flyer of the hotel I did find the actual letter describing the itinerary for the Diamond and fashion shows, printed on the hotel paper.
It was La Mansion Del Rio Hotel (112 College street ? all I remember is the back of the hotel led to the famous River Walk). Anyway, we were pretty underwhelmed the first time we passed The Alamo, if we'd have blinked, we'd have missed it ;-)
