I spent only 5 days in Austin, Texis this year. I went to see SXSW 2018 edition and it was quite something. I saw Elon Musk, Luke Skywalker, experienced installation of Westworld Premier, heard a talk from Bernie and we all felt the Burn.

I feel blessed to have had the chance to see how SXSW is Austin and Austin is SXSW. The weather is great. Music is everywhere. And everybody is up for a great time. 

Here are few of the things that I did and liked during my very short stay in the "Live Music Capital of the World" - Austin, Texas, USA.
