Finding Pieces of Mexico in Belton, Texas

Yesterday Hillary and I went to a local Mexican restaurant in Morgan’s Point, Texas, just outside of Belton. I had been there several times before moving to Mexico and I never thought it was very authentic for some reason. Probably because it is in a predominantly white, middle class neighborhood…

However, as we were greeted at the restaurant this time I could tell from her accent that our waitress spoke Spanish pretty regularly. Though, to avoid any embarrassing situations, I first asked her in Spanish if she does in fact speak Spanish. She did and I explained to her that we are learning Spanish and we continued the rest of our lunch only speaking Spanish with her.

It was really cool as we got to practice Spanish, she was able to speak in her native tongue (although she spoke perfect English), and we got to feel like we were back in Mexico.

Since moving back from Puerto Vallarta it has been really easy to get down or sad about not being there anymore. However, we are going to try our best to find small interactions like these to make us feel more at home:)

This is an easy way to feel as if we are traveling without having to go outside the county lines!

We encourage you to do the same! Don’t save your sense of wonder and excitement to learn about others until after you get off a plane. What are some ways you can do this right in your home town?

Keep it Kinetic,

Greg
