Spent the past 3 nights in Austin, Texas sampling the music - country, blues, rock and soul and the food from enchiladas to pizza. Also bought a pair of really cool cowgirl boots. Austin has a colony of about 1.5 million tiny bats originating from south america. They live under the Congress bridge during the day and fly out at dusk each evening to feed. A spectacular sight best seen up until early Nov when they migrate south for winter. We managed to view their flight on our first night there, not realising it was their last night. We went back last night and a no show. We were once again just in by the skin of our teeth. Drove through Dallas today, did not stop, too busy for us. Even the Sat Nav gave up the ghost, could not cope with the freeways so shut down. We are in a small town called Texarkana. One side of the main street is in Texas and a dry state and the other side in Arkansas where you can purchase alcohol. Back on the road early tomorrow heading for Memphis.
