They have a large rodeo here, and have cattle marches through the town twice a day. They even still have a steam train that stops here twice a day. We walked around then ate at one of the many BBQ places.

We then set off on the long drive across Texas, we went along the I-20 then up the highway 80 we stopped on route for coffee and doughnuts. We finally stopped at a place called Lubbock which is a small town about 100 miles south of Amarillo. Lubbock is where Buddy Holly was born and lived. We checked into a hotel and went on the search for food. We ended up in a Chinese all you can eat which cost £4 and was very good.Got back to the hotel around 9:30pm.
