Austin, TX

We’ve been in Austin, TX for a couple of days, hanging out with Dennis’ very fun sister Emily. She gets to play tourist by showing us the attractions. We went to an arts festival on 6th Street, and went to watch thousands of bats emerge from under Congress bridge at dusk (check out my feeble attempts to capture the bats on video).

We woke up the next morning and had breakfast at Las Manitas, a great Mexican diner serving cheap and delicious eats. If you’re in Austin, check it out, it probably won’t be there for long. Later, while kayaking on Ladybird Lake, we passed by who I can only assume was Matthew McConaughey (hard to tell because he was wearing a shirt). The McConaughey was floating by in a tiny sail boat smoking weed and made some small talk about the breeze. Ah, Austin!

So, we highly recommend going to Austin . Not only will you see several men who could be the McConaughey, but Emily could make you the most delicious homemade panini sandwiches and show you the sites.
