Our team is not always work, we also know how to have fun. During the conference, we met up with students and profesors from University of Utah, and explored the popular southwest cuisine such as Cowboy Cavier, Chicken Fried Chicken etc., in Downtown Austin.
On one of these occassions, we all went to an Ethiopian restaurant and enjoyed sumptuous meal with Injera, Doro Watt and Dibbs.
