My First Visit to Austin

Yesterday I took a day trip to Austin with a few coworkers. It was a quick trip, and with the rain, I wasn't able to take many good photographs. But here's a bit of what we did.

University of Texas Austin

I took this photo out the car window while we drove through the University of Texas campus. It was fun to see where my friend William lived and studied while completing a computer science degree there.

The Texas State Capitol Building

The Texas Capitol building is only four blocks south of the University of Texas campus.


These stairs lead to the Senate and House balconies.

Home Slice Pizza

We ate lunch at a tasty pizza shop on South Congress called Home Slice Pizza.

Amy's ice Cream

Amy's Ice Cream is known as one of the best ice cream shops in Austin.

Fun Fact: The city of Austin's unofficial slogan is "Keep Austin Weird," and I grew up seeing a similar slogan on bumper stickers around my home town—"Keep Asheville Weird."
