The Capital City- AUSTIN 

Many of us may have this special day on your cycling trip- Flat Tire Day, like 4 times in a day 😒Took a day off for those spoiled tubes. 
Austin-Live Music Capital of the World! It has the most live music performance place in America! It’s also my first time to hang out at night, not just for music, bu for bats 🦇! Yes, bats! There is a bridge called Congress Avenue Bridge, it’s more called by Bats Bridge actually, thousands of bats will come out at night ! It may sound creepy, but it’s actually amazing ! Hundreds of people taking the ship or kayaking just for watching them, it is hard to find a spot on the bridge even! They also thank the bats for killing most of the mosquitoes.
Capitol building is located next to the Sixth Street,it is the biggest State Capitol if all, it was almost 6pm when I got there, an uniform guy showed me the direction when I was thinking if it’s closed, ” I thought you are a statue “I blurted out without thinking, I did think so but it was really inappropriate to say that, probably nobody would be happy to hear that,lol i apologize!
The University of Austin. The basketball boys, reading girls, laughing lovers,ah, have you smelled the youth breath? I did! I felt life is so good that I didn’t feel regret for my youthfulness, I am enjoying every moment I am having! That’s the best state!!
You food you cant miss here are BBQ and Taco, thanks for Andrew and Lisa’s hosting, it really shocked me when I ordered two plates of meat, it was Huge!! I never eat so many meats at a time in my life! When I finished it up, the waiter was like ” I’m so proud of you !” Lol, I surprised myself as well, you can never underestimate a cyclist stomach!!

在旅途中你可能会经历一个特别的日子-爆胎日! 比如,一天爆胎4次!

为了这些被宠坏的胎,就当给自己放假一天了。

德州首府–Austin ,这个自定义为”世界现场音乐之都“的城市。 Live Music Capital of the World,这可是一个注册商标,启用于1991年,因为当时统计数据表明,奥斯汀是全美人均拥有现场音乐表演场所最多的城市

最热闹的属第六街,整条街一到晚上都是各种音乐气息和人潮涌动,这也是我第一次晚上出门,哈哈倒不是为了音乐,而是为了蝙蝠!没错,🦇蝙蝠! 这里🈶️一座Congress Avenue Bridge,实际上人们已经把它直接叫成了蝙蝠桥,一到天黑之后成千上万的蝙蝠在桥洞边飞行,听起来有点恐怖,不过场景实在很壮观,而且这已经成为了Austin 一大景观,很多人坐着轮船🚢或者开着皮筏艇在桥下专门为了等待这一刻,而桥上也站满了人,人们在观赏的同时也感谢它们的存在消灭了大部分蚊子。
第六街的附近就是德州议会大厦,它是美国各州中最大的State Capitol,圆形的盘旋设计很是壮观,当我到达时已是6点,正在犹豫是不是里面已经关闭时,门口一个穿制服的人说你可以从那边门进去,冷不丁我竟说了一句,我还以为你是雕像呢!哈哈当时真的以为他是座雕像,可是后来想想这句话实在欠揍,搁谁被说成雕像大概都觉得怪吧。

进去议会大厦后又遇到一个穿制服的人,这次我吸取教训礼貌的和人打招呼(因为我知道没有会行走的雕像[Laugh]),当他得知我是一路骑过来时惊讶的问我有没有名片,哈哈我说只是骑个车而已倒不至于印名片这么夸张,于是他加了我脸书,后来我才知道他不仅是议员,还是一个游走全球的摩托车手,他说如果再来Austin 一定要联系他,像我们这种游走四方的人一瓶酒一盘花生米就可以聊一晚上

Austin 大学,就在议会大厦的附近,篮球场上挥汗如雨的少年,操场上捧书阅读的女子,街道上嬉戏打闹的情侣,啊,都是青春的回忆啊!我驻足了很久,看着来来往往青春的面庞感觉人生真美好,即使回忆过去也不觉得有丝毫遗憾,活得精彩,和青春无关。
在德州一定要常的是BBQ 和Taco,其实都是墨西哥风味,所以他们称这里的食物为德墨风,感谢Andrew 和Lisa 的招待,他们说你一定要尝这里的烧烤,当我点了两盘肉时,惊讶的发现比我想象的大多了!还是我一个人的份量!当我花了毕生洪荒之力吃完时,服务员对我竖起大拇指说”我真为你骄傲”!哈哈,我自己都惊呆了,骑行的人胃口不可小觑!
