Why Austin is weird
- •The bats. Truly amazing but definitely weird. At 1.5 million, there are more bats than people.
- •Backing up into an angled parking spot...on the street. Who thought of that and really, why?
- •The food trailers. How can such great food come out of these beat-up trailers that look like they came out of some "American Pickers" episode?
- •The dogs. Everyone has a dog and many of them are the quintessential Austin hybrid: a chihuahua mixed with some other random little dog breed. And they all beg for gourmet ice cream.
- •That it's in Texas, of all places.
