One of the things I love about the downtown area of Austin is that half of it seems to look like a bomb site. I do not know the explanation for this, but it almost certainly is not bombs. The other half (to be fair more like 85%) of the downtown area of Austin looks like a cross between London, Dallas and Geneva (in my humble opinion): buildings from the last century mixed up with modern shiny extravaganzas. Behind this taco van you can see one of the latter. As with all great cities, the main thing is the contrasts.
