Walking Along SoCo and Lunching at Chi'Lantro (Fork it over, Austin! - Part 4)

After a caffeine breakfast at Caffe Medici, we set out for a long walk along South Congress St. ("SoCo"), which is full of fun storefronts, awesome signage, and happy graffiti. (One thing I've noticed about Austin is that most of the graffiti we've seen is uplifting and nice to look at.)

After walking about two and a half miles out and then turning back towards downtown, we were definitely in the mood for lunch. Sam had had an eye on Chi'lantro, a Korean-Mexican fusion taco truck (and the "original maker of kimchi fries,") so that's where we went.

I was a big fan of my bulgogi taco, although it was a huge mess. Then, planning the next half of the day, we ducked into the gorgeous Driskill Hotel in search of a bathroom.

Up next, we explore the UT Austin campus, where we encounter a man meowing opera songs while biking...
