We made it to Austin! We’ve been on the run ever since. We gobbled down some breakfast tacos with refried beans with Francisco at Copa on Friday, then met up with Sarah at Iron Cactus for an early lunch. They had this amazing pollo relleno, which featured chicken stuffed with corn bread and cheddar. We got a good start to our South by Southwest day with a raw and heartfelt set by Joshua James. Then we walked about a mile across downtown to see Madi Diaz behind the headquarters of Idea City, an advertising firm. This was the way to see music! We were sprawled out on a lush lawn as the sun peeked behind clouds, listening to a sweet, clear voice sing good songs, backed up by a polished band. They also had free tacos and beer! It was like what Coachella could be, if it weren’t 110 degrees and totally crowded. We wandered into the world headquarters of Whole Foods during our free hour and saw the largest, most ornate caramel apples ever. Everything is bigger in Texas!
