No, she ended up failing out of the class and went to a different language. I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't even make it through that or the military in general and probably went back to the OC, where she's probably working in a mall somewhere right now...

There must be at least a trillion spiders in the Olmos Basin alone.

This requires repeating. So very true.

Nowhere need be like somewhere else. Each place has its own uniqueness.
San Antonio is mostly arid with wet pockets. There will be some greenery (right about now especially), but it's mostly a dry climate. It's not going to look as green as Ireland or as Washington state. And that's ok The natural landscape is amazingly beautiful though.

FWIW - my husband is Swiss and very much misses his mountains, but he loves SA too, despite the lack of mountains.

The last photo, I believe, is of San Antonio Ranch - always a favorite hangout for Marshall kids (this is pre O'Conner High which split the school, of course). The area has beautiful lookouts, and I am very happy that a portion of it is now Government Canyon Park.
