Derek’s birthday

I arrived in Austin for Derek Chapman’s birthday. He turned 40. A lot of the artists who were hanging out here as part of the Mangola event had already flown home but there were enough of us here to have a great evening. It was too windy in the morning for the hot air balloon ride that was planned. Only regret is that Derek didn’t get out to see GogolBordello perform on his birthday.
