Travelog # 14 - Austin

Texas State Capitol

Got to visit Texas state legislature last Saturday. What made it easy for me for was the fact that it was right next to University of Texas. I just walked a couple of blocks to reach one the must see places in Austin downtown.

The access to the building itself was free and easy. In fact, there were signs everywhere that encouraged public to tour the impressive building. I haven't seen any other state capitol but, I was quite surprised with the grandeur of the building.
