Day 188: Embassy Suites, Austin, TX
Sunny and warm.
Dan went into town to explore while Kelsey and Greg went in to work. Tom and I stayed back at the hotel and did laundry and many year wrapping-up tasks: address changes, credit card bills, etc. It felt good to have that work done.
We met the kids and nephew Jared from Dallas on Rainy Street. It is a happening place full of food trucks, bars, and, I’m sure, college students most of the time. The workers at Bangers encouraged us to come behind the counter and get a closer picture of the side of pork they were about to barbecue.
We took a walk back to Sixth Street, where we had been on New Year’s Day. Live music was now blasting from most of the establishments. Still we did not see many college-age people, but Tom and I were some of the oldest folks on the block!
Afterward, we talked into the night with Jared.
