South of the Scenic City Border

My hometown of Chattanooga has some great ethnic places to eat but Mexican/Latin is by far the most popular. Lots of good stuff!

In our city, we have a delightfully diverse cultural population, leading to a wide variety of ethnic restaurants. However, Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants far outnumber all others, many of which are very authentic. Below is a sampling of some of our favorites (not including Poblano’s, our favorite, which has its own blog post!)

A Bright Moon In A Clear Sky Full Of Stars

Image from Wikipedia

Last night the sky was clear and the moon was so bright it lit up the darkness. There is a cool beauty of the whole thing. Looking up in the sky to see moon in a sea of stars. Creation is awesome that way. It just seemed to make all the cares of the world go away if just for a moment. Think about how awesome it all is that we can see that majestic wonder just by looking up. Maybe there is something to be said about that.
