Au Revoir Mes Amis
So, I feel like I've been living two lives for the past 90 days -- the one that involves work and home alongside my "real life" of enjoying the people and places of Austin.
Since I always want to end on a happy note, I'll begin with the "faux life" scenario. Indeed, I survived 91 calendar days at the IRS without slapping anyone! That said, it remains to be seen if the letter I've written as an aghast worker and appalled taxpayer is sent during the next few days. This scenario can only be surpassed by home life with a controlling, the world owes me roommate. I'll skip the details but yes, I did call the Austin Police on my last evening to get my key deposit back before I left. Note to self: you should NOT own a gun.
Fast forward to my "real life" in Austin, and on my last night, I had 2 friends who opened their homes to me, so I left town on June 1st with hugs, fond farewells and a spirit ready to start the next phase of my journey. I still have items on my "Austin to do" list, and I plan to be a tourist on my next visit.
I'll let the photos tell the highlights of my last week with the special people I've met and the lovely spots to enjoy in Austin.

Eileen, I'm not sure which chapter you're referencing but indeed life is never dull! Happily back in my tent!

Although you have made some great friends in Austin, it does sound like you are ready to move on. Thanks for the photos of your final days there. Always a pleasure to look at.

Claudette, Indeed I had enough of irrelevant work and living under someone else's roof! Happy to be back out in the woods!

What is life without a few chapters that involve self-restraint? Glad you had a great send off! Hope you find an occasional hot spot to drop me the details. :) Enjoy that tent!
