i guess i've spent so much time longing for new orleans that i'd forgotten about my love of austin. being there was fantastic. i was worried that it would've changed enormously in 7.5 years. not so much. large areas remain almost exactly the same. las manitas may be gone but magnolia remains so breakfast tacos and migas were consumed many times. bookpeople is still as great as i remember it and amy's mexican vanilla ice may have been even more delicious than i remember. and seeing caroline and greg was awesome. it was hot and sunny and the sky is still enormous. its not something i actually think i could explain but there is a vastness that you don't get here, or really anywhere. i hope to see it again soon.
