I’m in Austin!!!

14 Jan

Well theoretically if all my flights worked out and were on time, I’m in Austin! If they didn’t I may not be in Austin until like 11pm tonight. But eventually I’ll be in Austin!!!

So while I’m in the actually city, y’all can educate yourselves a little bit:

*Austin is the state capital of Texas

*People who live there are called “Austinites”

*Population of about 786,386

*It’s nickname is the “Live Music Capital of the World”

*The city slogan is “Keep Austin Weird” and it refers to the city’s eclectic and liberal reputation (how very un-Texan!)

*It is the home of North America’s largest urban bat population

*The Colorado River runs through the city

*It has an average of 300 days of sunshine per year (whooohoooo sign me up!)

*The average home price is $188,600

*Is one of the only cities to still run a system of moonlight towers (towers designed to light the city at night). Moon Towers? You may be asking yourself why that sounds familiar…

Austin’s Moon Towers were one of the main settings for the amazing movie Dazed and Confused, that’s why!
