Survived Austin with a Victory To Boot

Last night the football team of Ohio State University whooped the team of UT with a score of 24-7, and so now our vacation can truly begin in my estimation. With the electric energy leading up to this much-hyped college football game, my nerves have been on edge. Austin was a fun and funky town--our hosts were hospitable, charming and fun--and all-in-all, Austin was good to Bob and me although it wouldn't be my choice of a place to reside.

Today Bob and I drove to San Antonio after a fabulous Mexican brunch at a famous upscale Mexican restaurant with our hosts. On the way to San Antonio, we had been advised to stop at a huge Outlet Mall near San Marcos, supposedly one of the largest in the country. Everything in Texas comes super-size, so this Outlet Mall was no exception. We walked and shopped most of it with the temperature ranging around 93 degrees. It was worth it going into stores just to get out of the heat. The "deals" weren't all that great really, certainly not after you've been to Bangkok, India or Bali. But hey, we had to see what all the fuss was about.

Tomorrow we head over to check-out the Alamo and the Riverwalk...we'll see if these famous places live up to their histories and reputations. I'm the kind of person that often sees with a different perspective. It'll be interesting to experience first-hand what others rave about.
