The Lansing Journal journeys: Remembering the Alamo


submitted by Jenny Polley

The Alamo
The Lansing Journal returned to The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday, May 26, 2019, with Jenny Polley and Jamie Cleveland. A random tourist snapped the photo, and Jenny immediately texted it to The Lansing Journal.

Jenny added this story about her Lansing Journal Journey—As she and Jamie boarded a shuttle to the Alamo, with their Lansing Journal in hand, the shuttle driver asked where they were from. “Chicago,” replied Jamie.

“Lansing?” asked the driver.

“Yes!” they answered, surprised.

“I’m from Cal City,” said the driver, and he asked for updates on some of the restaurants and other haunts he used to frequent in Lansing.
