    # 3: Lions, Tigers, Rhinos -- Ernst, Picasso, Monet, Matisse -- Oh MY!



    Still on the fence about visiting Houston for the Brat reunion?  We have even more reasons to entice you to book those flights and register ASAP.

    There are over 150 museums and cultural institutions in the Greater Houston area, including a world-renowned zoo, many within 9 miles of the Omni and Royal Sonesta Hotels!  Check out this link for a compete list of the Houston museums and sightseeing venues available while visiting the Bayou City.  

    One of the most amazing museums in Houston is FREE and should not be missed if you are seeking some culture and education while at the reunion.  Spanning the prehistoric era to the present day, the Menil Collection includes European art, Surrealist works, Abstract Expressionism, Pop Art and Minimalism.  The museum is open Wednesday-Sunday from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM and ALWAYS FREE!  (Don’t you love that word?)  

    The Houston Zoo is situated amongst acres of outdoor spaces including: a train ride throughout Hermann Park, an amphitheater, botanical gardens, Chinese gardens, installation artwork, jogging/biking trails, a golf course and several museums – all within walking distance of one another. 

    There is a reason why Houston is ranked amongst the best cities to visit and live in by Forbes, the New York Times and other prestigious media sources!

    So make this reunion a vacation.  Get culture.  Bring the kids.  Oh….and have we mentioned the great weather you can probably expect in May?

    Our 3 correspondents all made it "home" and have been busy reviving childhood memories and making new ones.

    The easiest way to follow their adventures is on ABI's Facebook page where we are sharing their posts and travel blog entries.

    If you are not a Facebook user, you can still follow via these 2 travel blogs:

     - Diane Christofferson: https://akingdomhalfaworldaway.wordpress.com
     - Crystal Uecker Maxwell (and sister, Brandie): http://www.twotravelingblondes.blogspot.com

    Lastly, a KSAReunion Flickr photo pool has also been set up by the reunion committee for attendees to share their photos.  You should not need an account to view.

    We are very appreciative of these Brats for sharing their photos and stories with us.  Leave them comments in their blogs to let them know they put a smile on your face...or brought a tear to your eye, in some cases.

    Shukran, ladies, for the daily jogs down Memory Lane!
