When you want to get to Houston to visit friends and to see their new home, you extend your layover by 10 hours and spend the day with them! The day is even more exciting when you find out your Uber driver is a college student from West Africa. At that point, you spend the rest of the 5:30am ride speaking in French! And because shocking her with my ability to speak French wasn’t enough, I gave her my friend’s number, so she could get connected with other international students!
Such a fun day catching up with these friends, enjoying some authentic tacos, and taking in the city skyline!
