February Fandom - I love Texas!

I love Texas! Every time I visit a location in Texas it is always unique and interesting. Be it San Antonio, Austin or College Park. My latest visit was the capital city of Austin. Everywhere is the saying "Keep Austin Weird!" I'm not sure if that because of the million bats living under the Congress Bridge or the strange focus of the food trucks but I like it. I like it all. My two favorites have to be the bats and the music. Austin has an area like Bourbon Street. Theirs is 6th Street. If you are looking to hear good music head downtown for 6th Street and you don't have to wait for 9 or 10 o'clock for things to start jumpin' like in New Orleans. Mid-afternoon, evening or 2am, there's always good music and drink to be had. Austin also has the largest urban bat colony living under the Congress Bridge. It's a unique experience to see hundreds of people gather nightly to wait for the bats to make an appearance though apparently summer is not a really big swarming time and one had to be right against the railing to see the little mammals. This is another of those places that I would gladly return to so I could see more.

Cool pictures!
I checked up on the bats on youtube and found a video, but I couldn't make it behave and post it here.
It looks absolutely freakingly awesome!

The bats didn't make a grand appearance while we were there but the people watching was great.

They are pretty cool. Down here the food trucks are all the same. Just one type of truck but there anything can be turned into a food truck from a bus to a shipping container. So cool.
