Downtown Austin

So these 41 photos are not exactly recent but it still gives a good impression of The Capital of Texas. My impression are: it’s an Oasis: culturally and geographically speaking. The UT (University of Texas), and famous corporate, bring a quite open minded spirit.

The State Capitol – Austin, TX

Let’s focus on this beautiful building where the photos of the State’s decision makers was hanged.
