Photos: Austin – Part 2

    Here are the second set of photos from my recent Austin trip. (click on the picture to view a larger version 1600×1200, you’re free to use them for noncommercial purposes, click for details)

    More pictures are coming soon…

    This is of Taquieras Arandinas on Riverside. It’s not bad but not as good as the Taquieras Arandas on Burnet Road.

    The next few shots were taken on North Lamar around 6th Street. Lots of good stuff there: Book People (killer indy book store), Waterloo Records, and of course the G-M Steakhouse (where the funniest scene in the classic Richard Linklater movie Slacker took place

    The next three shots are of the intersection of MLK and Guadalupe near the UT campus. I lived about 1 block from here from 1997-2000 so I have lots of fond memories of this area, particularly of strolling through the area late at night on my way back from the Dog & Duck. — One sad memory though is of a bicycle activist who was killed near this intersection by a careless driver on October 2, 1998, Ben Clough.

    These last few pictures are all of the Drag (Guadalupe). So much has changed but a lot has stayed the same (thank God)
