I've done a fair amount of moping and grieving the past few weeks, but have managed to get out a few times and do some things. We only went to a few of the SXSW festival happenings this year. The crowds just get larger every year and it is less appealing to us to deal with it. Here are a couple of the ones we did get to last week and week end. Getting there, we drove to the train station and took the train downtown. It was a quite uncomfortable, like being in N.Y. or San Francisco. It was standing room only and in very close quarters. Ewww It was even worse coming back, but we were on line early and at least got a seat this time.
Meanwhile back at the convention center, there was a lot going on there besides the poster show and Music Gear Expo. There were bands playing on several stages and it got to be a bit much after awhile. Hubby went to listen to music and I wandered around seeing some of the other sights.
I met these really cute young ladies in line at one of the venues. I asked if I could take their photo, I thought they were so cutely dressed. They are Kari from Nashville, and Ella from Atlanta. Hope you can make out Ellas' huge wooden peace sign earrings. Believe me there were a lot of really cool costumes, most I did not get a chance to take photos of. Most of these were taken with my cell phone as I need to shop for a new camera.
