    First real day in Austin, and by the gods even the grass is bigger in Texas!
    At least that´s what we concluded after exploring the small part of the city where we live. And really, judging by the food we´ve eaten, by the end of the month we´re going to be pretty big too! We should probably cut down on the fast food a bit.
    The big event of today was, of course, the football match between Texas Longhorns and Colorado Buffaloes…
