Finally! After months and months (years?) of talking about my love for a city I've never been, I have made it to Austin, Texas. Not only is this my first time in Austin, it is my first time in Texas (outside of an airport). Howdy y'all!
A few quick things I've observed:
- It is warm. I like that.
- The water smells funny.
- There is a lot of construction happening in the "downtown" area
- Lots of banks
- The city is lively and quiet and sprawling and condensed. Lots of contradictions, but they are very good contradictions.
