Tomorrow I'm off to trendy Austin, Texas.
Today was Independence Day in the USA. Given that lots of shops and attractions are closed, there was never going to be much for me to do. After breakfast I went for a walk to soak in the July 4th atmosphere. I found out that there was going to be a concert and fireworks in the Downtown area, but it would be packed with people and impossible to get a taxi back to the hotel. I was informed that I could see the fireworks from the comfort of my hotel so I decided to stay there. Before I returned from my walk, I went to the supermarket to buy some soup for dinner. I figured that the soup along with the food provided at the hotel, chips and biscuits etc would be enough for me tonight given I had a late lunch. I had a microwave in my room, but I'm not sure if you can see but I made quite a mess of it (see picture).
