south of houston

south of houston

Just South of Houston which, I'm told, means we're in Soho. (SOuth HOuston)

And Houston? By all means *don't* pronounce it like a city in Texas -- instead lead with the word "house" if you want to avoid the subsequent moment in which the cabbie asks: "So where are you from?"

Which carries the subtext: "Because clearly you're not from here."

thanks, callyway. it's a responsibility that we take seriously here at detritus: taking the travel bullet so you don't have to. ;)
