Shortly after returning from Paris a Christmas visit to Austin was on the agenda. Having bought this ticket 4 months ago as a surprise to my daughter I was unaware she was already booked for her third season at Sundance in Utah. Oops! To my surprise a gig in San Antonio came through and she worked the Texas event and Sundance remotely. Isn’t technology grand?
Here we are, I am the one with the hat.
Upon landing in Austin I was anxious to see any changes to the airport. It had been 3 years since my last airport visit and they had recently opened a new wing.
There was the usual..
Statutes to important people who served the people. Nice statute of Barbara Jordan.
Busy luggage areas decorated for the holidays.
Then there was the unusual and funky..
Weird Austin walls on entry to the bathrooms.
A composting container next to the trash and recycling receptacles.
And what a phenomenal idea. Never saw one of these in an airport.
Quite a tribute to someone who did so much. Let’s hope it is to the man who caught those crooks.
And many ways to purchase coffee.
But my favorite were the dogs. Never saw so many in an airport. Guess it was home for the holidays. Here’s my favorite. Isn’t she a beauty?
Now that the Airport has met my approval, on to San Antonio where my daughter was one of the event helpers at a national Christmas party for 20,000 USAA employees. That must be quite a party. Catch you tomorrow.
