Yes, I sort of dropped the ball as far as San Antonio is concerned. Truth be told, I wasn't all that impressed with it, although I wasn't feeling well at the time.
We originally came to Austin to catch some music, this being the live music capital of the world. We love the music that comes out of this part of the country; from blues to indie rock, country to jazz, rock en español and more. So imagine our delight when we discovered that this very week is South by Southwest (SXSW) music & film festival in Austin on Sixth St!!! Until we found out that a half a million people come to Austin for this event! To get a wristband to all of the events is $450 in advance. Walk in rate is $950 per person. No kidding. Then we thought, might be a bummer that we ended up here this week.
I love murals painted on walls in downtown areas.
We're back on the road tomorrow, but I'll try to post some more about Austin!
