Austin is a beautiful mix of countryside, hills, and a lovely downtown with a very small footprint. I guess that's why people love it so much. It is very unique compared to other large Texas cities which seem to be miles of concrete.
Interesting comparison to Little Rock. It does seem a lot like Austin. We even both have rivers running through the middle of town :)
A picture a day from the capital of slackerdom! (unless we had too many mango margaritas the night before). Always weird, sometimes wonderful... put on your flip-flops, grab a breakfast taco, and hop in the VW bus with us for a spin around town :)
