I awoke at the Holiday Inn in San Antonio Texas. I ate continental breakfast. I did a complete unpack, repack of the buggy, I even tossed a few things. I checked out and hit the road.
I met Ascensión! He was by the bus stop. He told me he was dizzy and needed to go to the doctors. I gave him a bottle of water and my hat. Ascensión is homeless. We talked a bit about his struggles. I was able to help him out with some money. He was really thankful. I headed west.
I put in a few miles out past the Air force base. I drank lots of water, it was hot. After a few hours of hiking, I ran into Ascenión again! He was sitting outside a gas station. I asked him if he was hungry and he asked for a slice of pizza. I was able to help him out. I was curious about how he was able to get out of town that far, i had been traveling for hours. He told me he took a bus. We hung out for a bit and I made sure he didn’t need anything else. We parted ways. I hope he made it to the doctors.
