One of the long standing arguments in American Political History is the question of what the Civil War was actually fought for. Many historians argue it was for the abolishment of slavery, but every Southerner grows up knowing it was for States Rights. Austin during the Civil War, flew under the flag of the confederacy, and so included in our history are many instances of the Confederate States, including this tribute to the people who died fighting to protect their states rights.

Beautiful Casa De Luz is one of my favorite spots in Austin. There is a feeling of calm and serenity as soon as you walk through the gates...for an unusual dining experience, a yoga class, bellydancing and more, this is the place to go. Check out their website for upcoming events or sign up with their weekly newsletter.

It seems as if the city of Austin plays host to many musical and arts festivals. It is a hive of culture and eclectic fun.
During my visit there was a music festival, the Red Bull Flugtag and a chalk sketching competition. Do not forget the annual Pun Off in memory of O Henry!

Le Fun and Einstein Arcades are a couple of places to get rid of time and money while on "the drag," a street also known as "Guadalupe," across from the University of Texas. Most of the games are pretty cheap, sometimes they have quarter or fifty cent specials. In both of them, you can sometimes find strange games (like one about babies fighting eachother to the death) or active ones like this boxing one. It even has a calorie counter!

One of the greatest events in the history of former NASA engineers was the Red Bull Flugtag that appeared in Austin in 2003. It was hard to picture that many crazy former Rocket scientists propelling themselves off a 30 foot drop off into Town Lake down in Austin!

The 40th or 41st (lost count) annual Eeyores birthday party takes place the last Saturday in April.This is a one of a kind gathering that has something for everyone.There are lots of activities for the kids early in the day and as the day wears on the party gets more bizzare with folks dressed up in all sorts of costumes.Groups gather throughout the park in drum cirlcles and wierdness is the order of the day.Local micro breweries supply the beer and there is enough beer consumesd to float a aircraft carrier.

All over Austin there are tons of neat statues. There are many on the capital grounds, as well as in other locations. We saw a few on the UT campus, too. The workmanship is awesome. If you like art and appreciate artistry, take time to look at the Austin statuary.
