We started off Day 2 in Austin with a little walk around the downtown area, where we saw our first of the epic amounts of beautiful graffiti and murals that decorate the entire city.
Wondering whether the drizzling rain would let up so we could spend the day outside, we made a coffee stop at one location of Caffe Medici, an airy multi-level space where we contemplated how friendly and happy everyone seems down here.
I opted for chai, while Sam went for the French press coffee.
After sufficient caffeination and people-watching, we headed back out into the drizzle to go for what ended up being a ten-mile walk around town. More on our explorations and meals in the next post...
