It's been a busy week of figuring out the necessities of life --- how to cycle from my front door safely; finding a nice group to ride with on occasion; and of course, stuff like locating the supermarket, bank, post office, and library. Good to go! I also enjoyed a free event with Brazilian music (yes, some bossa nova in Portuguese!), some great fish tacos, and a farewell dinner with a hostel pal I hope to see again. I dropped in on a public meditation sitting one night but the jury's still out on that one. Overall, finding my way around Austin by bike, foot and auto while stunned at how cheap the cost of living is here (except housing). More on that another day!
Next entry ... what's it like to return to a day to day job? what's it like to work for the IRS? Can I report on that?
