WELCOME TO LITTLE AMERICA: LEE COUNTY, TEXAS (CNN) ... A Taste of Texas PT.8
This Taste of Texas PT.8 will be to take a look at some of rural Texas. Even though I live in a large metro area of Texas ... Dallas/ Fort Worth , I am one who actually covered the entire state, and it's large. I was not born in Texas, I was born in the Northeast, my familia's home's were New York, Pennsylvania, Southern California and Southern Nevada, Grandma had a small beauty salon business in Miami Beach (FL), and kin in Birmingham, England, so I came here as a Lone Ranger of sort, with no familia here ... actually as a fugitive from justice as a teen from Montreal, QE (Canada), and settled first in the City of Houston . I came here for a fresh start, and for me it paid off, and that is why I love this state, which must seem insane to some folk's, with all the talk you hear about Texas that is negative ... it actually was the best move I made, as odd as this may sound, but you would have to realize some of the obstacle's and issue's I faced too.
However, one of my favourite thing's is visiting load's of small Texas town's while driving, whether it's between Dallas and Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas (Mexico) and other Mexicano cities close by, or the far western part's out toward's El Paso, Big Bend, the Rio Grande Valley, or the south sub- tropical valley, the coast, hunting in the Big Thicket's and Southeast Texas ... or the small town's way up in the Panhandle by Palo Duro Canyon ... you name it, I been there. But Texas is full of these little town's, and the Barbeque and TexMex is like no other in the nation, at really great price's too ... it can be very difficult to watch your diet in this state, some of the most friendliest laid back atmosphere's, etc ... and I have covered this nation coast to coast as well, and frankly I never could find TexMex/ Mexicano/ Barbeque like here. But the link below on one of those small town's from CNN. This damn video below make's my mouth water! Lot's of reasonable clean motel's as well to spend the night, in some of your favourite area's you get to find over the travel's, as well as the great eateries and place's to take in a few drinx and some music or such.
CNN/ WELCOME TO LITTLE AMERICA: LEE COUNTY, TEXAS Actually this piece was done, showing the ethnic diversity and balance according to America overall as far as culture percentage's in population's, or such.
