Austin’s Outdoor Art Gallery/Galería de Arte al Aire Libre

Yesterday was my one week anniversary since I moved to Austin! I celebrated with a walk around the Clarksville’s Castle and Lady Bird Lake areas. Near the castle there’s a vacant lot with several walls, remnants of several buildings or homes. What’s unique about this place is that local artists are constantly taking over these walls and creating outdoor canvases for everyone to enjoy!

Take a look!

¡Ayer cumplí una semana de que llegue a Austin!  Y aunque no había tenido la oportunidad de salir por que no conozco el área todavía, convencí a mi roommate para que me llevara al castillo (en realidad es una casa en forma de castillo) en el área de Clarksville. Precisamente vi un reportaje en las noticias locales sobre este lugar y no resistí ir a buscarlo. Y vaya sorpresa que me lleve, ¡Es una galería de arte al aire libre!

Disfrútenlo.

1,300 Miles Away from Home

I’m moving to Texas! And it isn’t an April fools’ joke. Actually, I have been in Austin for three nights and two days.

The crazy part is that I moved here without ever visiting the city, let alone the state of Texas. The only other time I can think I did something as spontaneous was when my family and I decided to move to San Diego from Mexico City. One day we packed our bags, jumped on a plane and moved.

I spent 14 years in sunny San Diego. It is hard to say goodbye to great weather, beautiful beaches, and above all my family, my boyfriend & my dog, but sometimes you just have to take a risk and follow your dreams, or in this case a dream job?…well I can update you on that one once I start working.

Will I become an Austinite, or will I forever be a San Diegan?
