San Antonio, TX and me – the love story

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”.
