Painted Church

A one hour drive from Houston is Schulenburg, Texas, popularly known for their painted churches. These small churches look very ordinary from outside and you can almost miss them when driving past them. But they have some beautiful designs painted inside. Many of them are more than a hundred years old, built by early Czech settlers in Texas. The one featured here is Dubina church.

But do not go there on a hot summer day. There are no ACs inside the churches, and unless you love the aroma of baking wood ( most of the churches are entirely made of wood), you will be in no mood to appreciate the artwork.
