We woke up a bit earlier than usual and grabbed some of the crappy continental breakfast at the hotel before checking out. Our first stop of the day was to meet with a realtor in Austin; given that we may be moving to Austin, we wanted to see what sort of homes might be available at a reasonable price. The realtor was very relaxed and knowledgeable, and showed us three different homes to give us a feel of what different amounts of money can get in Austin right now. I loved checking out the homes and seeing how much more affordable it is in Austin than in California. Afterwards, Dar and I got some BBQ and then parked near downtown to walk along the river.After getting back to the car, we checked into the hotel that UT Austin had put us in for the coming three nights. We relaxed for a little while and then I was picked up by my grad student host to go out to dinner. We went to a BBQ place and met up with a few other grad students and their prospective student visitors. It was nice to meet with everyone and get to hear their stories. After dinner we went to a local place that reminded me quite a bit of Cafe Pergolesi in Santa Cruz. There we participated in their trivia night and drank some beer; it was a good time. Once I got back to the hotel, Dar and I hung for a while before going to bed. It was nice to be back in Austin.
