With the moving, the AT&T fight and everything, I have only had time to go for a walk downtown Austin twice. Mostly around the Capitol.

For non American readers who might not know, Austin is the capital of the State of Texas. The State Capitol building is made of “sunset red” granite and it is a few feet higher than its model, the Capitol building in Washington, DC. There sit both chambers of the Texas legislature.
The Capitol can be visited, something I will do as soon as time permits.
Below is, first a picture of the Frost Bank Tower, and second a view of downtown Austin from Town Lake Park.
