Back home


After a few months in Maastricht, I don’t miss my family, pets, or friends more than I miss my one comfort food that just doesn’t exist here. Texans are born and raised to cook and eat authentic Mexican food, so every week I yearn for the free endless servings of chips and salsa back home. Europe definitely has America beat in every other area of food – from German Wienerschnitzel or Belgian waffles and frites to the fresh-baked bread around every corner, but I still dream of the day when I land in America and go straight to my favourite Mexican restaurant to order a piping hot chimichanga.
