I always find funny search topics in my “blog stats” page. I’ve thought about starting a new theme where I give a response to the search in question. Because, honestly, sometimes I’m totally dumbfounded how someone can arrive here, on my blog, because of a string of words like this:

what was used to build the alamo

That was copied and pasted from the actual blog stat report.

So in answer to the question…

The Alamo was built with rock from a quarry that is now the San Antonio Zoo and the Japanese Tea Gardens, both located in Brackenridge Park – a local favorite and a tourist hot spot.
