Austin, there I go...
The flight to Austin was short, not even 1hr, although I managed to catch some sleep, since I knew these next few days would be about partying and partying, so I needed to save some energies, hehe. Because of the delay, I arrived almost around 7:40pm. When I was going to claim my bag I saw Minh. Oh! So sorry, he had to wait almost 1 hour for me... But he didn't have any problem with that. Isn't he cool?

We drove to his house. In our way we were chatting and talking about what has been going with us since we last met... +/- 2 months ago, haha. He told me he had another guest at his place, sweet! This time, he didn't need to make me a tour through the house. I already knew it ;) I was getting a glass of water at the kitchen, when I met Brian.
yeah! 6th Street!
He already knew that the Peruvian girl was coming. Today there would be just the 3 of us at the house. By the way all of us arrived same day to Austin. Brian in the morning, Mihn in the afternoon and Yadi in the evening ;) Actually, we'd be 4. I was forgetting about Minh's little buddy: Milton. But he'd take it easy tonight. Tomorrow would be party night for Milton...

Minh told me another friend was in his way and we would go out to start the party, hehe. I took a quick shower and got ready to go. Around 10 something Alon arrived. We'd go to 6th St. I have already been there! hehe. Where exactly on 6th St? Well, there are so many places to choose there, haha. Taxi arrived and we drove to downtown.

First we went to get something to eat. The boys were starving, haha.
with Minh! ojitos chinitos! The coolest host and friend!!!
We got drinks too, this would be my first drink in Austin - this time of course, haha. We needed to warm up before starting the night, hehe. Another friend of Minh joined us: Ted. I met him back in October and he remembered me. It felt so nice being recognized, great!!! OMG! Everybody everywhere knew Minh and Alon. I noticed that last time in Austin, but now I could notice it even easier, haha.

Ok, stomachs were full and already had our first drinks, so it was time to go to a club, dance and keep on toasting, cheers!!! Ok, where to go now? To the Red Fez. This place was packed, with a waiting line... But Minh and Alon are well known in the party circuit, so they let us go inside without any line, haha. It's sweet hanging out with guys in a band. Furthermore, I was the only girl, 4 boys and 1 girl.
Brian, Minh, Ted and me - so much fun!
I had my harem, no complains at all. ;)

We got our drinks and started to party. We were dancing and having fun, when Minh came letting us know that he was talking to the manager asking him if they had a band for the weekend, but they didn't have any scheduled, so Minh's band "I need more Cowbells"  would perform here on Saturday! Super!!! Ok, let's get a shot to celebrate!!! This would be a loooong fun weekend!!! OMG! My flight back home was on Saturday, mmm I'd try to delay it, hehe.

It was around 1am and we moved to the 2nd club, the Lucky Lounge, where I have already been too, haha. Of course, no needed to do any line either, hehe. While we were there we met more friends: Kyon and Tim. Kyon left cold North Carolina to spend NYE and party in Austin ;) He'd stay until Friday, so we'd be hanging out together during the next few days.

I taught Brian that he had to toast looking into other person's eyes, otherwise... bad luck... haha. So, every toast was a lot of fun, haha.

Of course I was introduced to everyone as "Yadi from Peru". Yeah! That's me! The Peruvian girl :) There was a band playing and the place was packed... Somehow we managed to go closer to the stage, haha. The band was taking a break and we were just partying there while a DJ was playing some music. Yadi and her harem, haha. Well, I wouldn't be the only girl for long. Vanessa showed up! She was there with another friend and just staid with us for 15min, but it was so great to meet her again! Definitely we'd meet again during the next few days.

We were having so much fun and could have kept on partying, but next day was NYE, so better save some energies.
playing Rock Band!
After quite a few drinks and dancing we left the club around 2am! We arrived back home but didn't go to sleep right away. Instead of that we played "Rock band" and "Sing Star", haha. That was hilarious!!! Finally we went to bed around 4:30am, haha. Thinking about next day and definitely we'd play Rock Band again. This game became our addiction, haha. And was quite competitive too, hehe.

This was just the first night... what should I expect for the rest of the days? No idea, just know that this would be so much fun!!!
