There are Asians in San Antonio. You just have to look a little harder.
There are many Asian food stores and restaurants. Also, check out the yearly Texas Folklife Festival held every June.

Genn, I don't have the statistics readily to hand here, but there is a Chinese and Korean population here, as evidenced by the numerous Korean churches not too far from my house and the rather old and long-standing Chinese population here. The "story" I heard is that the San Antonio Chinese came from two sources - the construction of railroads (Southern and Union Pacific) and the Chinese who arrived with General Pershing out of Mexico as they were the only ones who supplied his expeditionary force down there and who were fearful of Mexican reprisals, probably justifiably so. There are a number of Indian families here as well, especially in my neighborhood.

The scientific/research & medical communities in San Antonio have attracted many Indians and Chinese researchers and doctors who have settled here.

Not a mile from my house are Korean grocery stores and even a Korean travel agency. We have both nationalities at my company.

To each his own, but personally, I wouldn't live in Kirby on a bet, but again, this is a matter of personal taste. Good hunting.

I am an ethnic Korean moving to SA! I've was born, lived in SA much of my early life, and I know it quite well as many of my relatives live there [So I've visited ]


Royal: Do you live near Fort Sam Houston? There is a Korean grocery, video store, and travel agency in a shopping center near the fort.

Well talk to you all later!

You got it, Hyun-Soo. I live off of Harry Wurzbach just inside of Loop 410. Do you know any westernized Korean males who DON'T want a traditional Korean wife? We need to find a suitable partner for a lady who works for us. Sorry if this seems forward, but I'm becoming concerned about her.
