At the beginning of this year, I had to head to Texas for work. I’ve been to Dallas and Houston many many times – but never to San Antonio. On a side note, I still dream of spending some time in Austin (I imagine a city full of food trucks!).
I was invited to spend a night at a ranch about 60 miles south of the city. I spent less than 14 hours there – and I loved it. I loved the people with their laid back, easy -to- laugh attitudes. I even loved the heat – none of that evil East Coast humidity to be found.
Did I tell you they handed me a cold beer in the car when I got to the ranch!?
I’m sure it’s legal in TX.
Maybe it was because when I told them I’m a vegetarian and wouldn’t be having the T-bone steak – they didn’t bat an eyelash – and they didn’t give me a plate of vegetables. The avocado and black bean tacos were amazing.
I don’t know what I expected – but it was beautiful, friendly and full of big-hearted people. A few more hours and I would have bought some cowboy boots , worn copious amounts of turquoise jewelry and started saying ” y’all”.
