Renee's Visit

Renee finally got to visit me here in GA. She was here just for a weekend, but we tried to make the most of our time. First, we went to the botanical garden...



Then we went to the aquarium...







Then, we met Jennifer & JP at Craft for dinner...



On our last day, we all hung out in Little Five Points for a few hours before I had to take Renee to the airport (and head to Austin myself!).

Recently I had to take a quick business trip to Austin where I got to catch up with some NJ friends, including one that I went to grad school with. I also had the pleasure of being shown around by Jennifer's cousins who I've hung out with before.

I'd never been to Austin before and I really liked it. It has a nice skyline, lots of antique/vintage stores, and some cool areas to hang out in.


Austin from South Congress St.

The owl building really houses a bank, I believe. When looked at from the diagonal, it really looks like an owl! This is definitely the most distinctive building in Austin.

One of the things that Becky taught me about Austin is that people wait for the bats to come out every night from under the Congress Street Bridge.
