Yes, Austin is lovely. I lived there for 12 years and
I often go back to it. It is definately a place with
character. Austin has wonderful attractions as was
just described. Just an hour south is San Antonio and
the River Walk. Austin is an atypical Texas town...an
Oasis in Texas! San Antonio too. It has been hot and
rainy, though and quite humid. I live in Denton, TX
now just 3.5 hours away from Austin. It is in the
north part of Texas. Austin is in the Texas Hill
Country and the fall or spring is the best time to go.
 But there are a lot of funky things around the
holidays in Austin. You can go to Esther's Follies
(sort of a comedy cabaret that is hilarious) You can
go to Austin City Limits. You can go to sixth street
and hear live music of all types. You can go to many
different good galleries...like Women and their Work
and of course, Flatbed press. It is just a cool
place...but hot this time of year and getting hotter.

What I liked about Austin is it's character. It is
funky and different and cosmopolitan, liberal and
conservative; it has great shops that are different
than many places. It has a restaurant on every
corner. If you decide to go to Austin, Michel...let
me give you more info or anyone else on the list who
has lived/visited there.

Cheers,

Diane
