Some of you may not know that Houston is the most diverse city in the US. People from all over the world blend in this metropolis, and many ethnic groups have carved out cultural niches. This is particularly true of the Chinese and Vietnamese, and there are several areas in Houston defined by their culture and language.
Chinatown, on the south side of Houston, is the largest such area, and though I knew of its existence I had never been there until recently. Talk about entering another world. Not much was in English either written or spoken.
The first thing that caught my eye was this building, so it had to be checked out.
He said, “Eat and then I’ll tell you what it is.” Now, that really made me feel secure! In case you’re wondering, one ingredient was blood sausage!
Exploring Chinatown was a wonderful adventure, and you know the best part? A $17 haircut and a $35 massage which was pure bliss. You can be sure I’ll return for more of the same! Oh yes, the food market was a whole other adventure, but I’ll save it for later, so do come back.
