Austin was one of those cities where I experienced more in real life and less behind a lens. Not that I didn't want to-- the colorful murals reminded me of the Mission back home and I don't think I've ever eaten more (delicious) tacos.
I've heard that Austin isn't conventional Texas but I didn't believe it until I found myself driving around in a smart car on my way to pick up Asian fusion for lunch. It's a charming little town in its own humble hippy kind of way. I just hope I won't forget the colors and the vibrant people who gave them a home.
