March 20, 2014 by hopev227   

Texas. When most propel think Texas the are thing horses, desserts, dust balls, and cowboys. No… No…. NO! They do exist just not in the majority of the area. Texas is a beautiful state to live in and to visit.
Austin is one of the most coolest city’s in the USA and is one of the fastest growing. Austin is known as the “Live Music Capitol of The World” because of all the artist and shows that are played here. SXSW (South By South West) is one of the biggest music festivals in the world and people from different countries come for a week to listen to all the music. In Austin you pretty much live and breathe music.
Another thing is Austin is well known for is the lake. Austin is pretty much based off the lake. People use it for recreation and for every day nessesities. The lake is also used for naming schools. Lake Travis, and Westlake are the two main high schools with lake in them. When they play each other the game is know as the “Battle of The Lakes” and it’s always and exciting, emotional, intense game.
Austin is a great place to call home and to raise a family. Austin has been my home for the past 13 years and I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. Austin is a great city and if you ever think about visiting Texas, well Austin’s always here.

    Dear Hope,
    I would love to live in a place that breaths music. I live near Kansas City and in the old days, KC was the place to see American Jazz being born. Tons of amazing players—Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis—played every night in different venues throughout KC. You can see the history of my city’s music here

    What surprised me the most about Austin was the presence of a lake. I never knew that there was a nearby lake. I’m sorry to say that, as a person who doesn’t know much about Texas, I don’t usually associate lakes and Texas geography. So it’s good ot know.

    Again, thanks for writing and I look forward to your next writing adventure.
