The Stars At Night...Are Big And Bright
I can officially confirm that this fact about Texas is true.
The reason it's true is because the landscape is so flat, that there is noting about 50 feet to block your sight.
Being back from vacation is a bit of a downer, but at least I have some new knowledge of a place that I've never been. My girlfriend Vanessa and I took and extended weekend trip to Austin, Texas. We went, because we had never been there before and wanted to see something new. For the first day, I had wondered if we had gotten off a plane and landed back in Madison?
People say Austin and Madison are very similar. Here's why:
- Both are capitol cities
- Both are University Towns
- Both have a State Streeteque bar/restaurant scene
- Both are very bike friendly
- Both places seem very welcoming of people of different backgrounds
Those facts alone made me wonder if I had actually left Madison. I kept listening for a Texas accent and only found a few. It should bother me, but really, I didn't care too much.
You know what they say. A bad day of vacation is still better than a good day of work.
