I spotted this man at my favorite taqueria. He was enjoying a super burrito and a bowl of chips, and I loved that the look on his face captures exactly how I feel when I’m there–relaxed, satisfied, and happy. It’s not just an eating experience, you see. It’s a bright airy place with lots of windows, kelly green trim inside, and paintings and models of parrots on and around the ceiling. It’s the kind of place people come for lunch with a newspaper or a group of friends and stay a lot longer than is necessary. The food is served very quickly and it’s fast and easy to eat, but no one is in a rush to finish or to leave. It’s like a little oasis in the middle of the busy workday, and I can tell I’m not the only one who loves being there. I see the same faces over and over and some of them might also end up on this blog…if they catch my eye.
