As We Where Walking In we saw this huge guy on a horse i had no clue what it was but every one else was admiring it the statue was actually called the Oñate statue because of the multiculture in El paso with there neighbors Don Juan. its about 4:55 So lets get going see you in marfa I say as the plain takes off!

( "Pilgrims Made it There Play Ground")
We only have one day here so first we are seeing family them they are going to show us around!
when we first arrived we had to get moving we decided to go to the capitol where there had a tour on how Austin was founded and the culture and history of Austin. here is what i wrote down.
Austin was founded on December 27 1839.
Austin has unique culture that some people consider weird, they have a saying :"Keep Austin weird". Austin is known for the Capital, Longhorns, Music, laid back ,quirkiness, and their awesome Texas country concerts.
Austin Nature And Science Center was next it was a cool place kinda like a zoo but not it showed all about the things you might find around Austin. My favorite part was the Skeleton that you could walk through. we did not take one so i found one. Use the link down below.
we are now going to the Capital of Texas witch is awesome inside with a giant star in the center of the building. they give you a tour of the building and the coolest part was The star! The capital was aringanaly built in 1891 But the whole structure got burned down. The new capitol was started in 1885 and finished in 1888.
So then comes the question why is Galveston not big any more? Well Galveston has been hit many times by hurricanes but the deadliest of all was back in 1983 This was also the first ever hurricane to hit Texas! This hurricane destroyed everything and Galveston was never the same.
