Austin I

Austin, Texas.  Part 1.

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.
