Austin!

Wow! We arrived 24 hours ago and my husband was right: I love this town and am ready to plant some roots. Our first task was to visit Whole Foods World Headquarters and its flagship store. We went through Whole Foods withdrawal living in Iowa (after all, it was our local grocery store in Cambridge) and it was a bona fide pleasure to troll their aisles again. This cool store is definitely a tourist attraction. There are small kiosks all over that offer quick bites to eat: a soup and chili bar/brick oven pizzeria/gelato bar/sushi bar/dipped chocolates station/All-American deli etc. We grabbed soba noodles and rice bowls for lunch.
Additionally, we saw some fly flora and fauna around town: palm trees/wild parrots/salamanders/road runners (which look like small dinosaurs).

Wow, the flagship store of Whole Foods! We do have Whole Foods here, but it isn't all that close.
