The smells of so many different kinds of food, filled the air of downtown Houston.
There were so many food booths, but I could find no new countries represented. We had some Argentine food and Columbian food and even some gelato. Good food, but no new countries to add to my list.
I needed some Swedish cuisine or some food from Ghana! Even Brazil would have worked. As you can see from the photo above, I'm less than thrilled about some fat on my Columbian sampler plate. And the food's expensive and you have to buy those tickets... In other words, Houston's I-Fest is not my favorite way to enjoy international foods.
Where else can you enjoy a tango and a dragon dance within minutes of each other?
And where else can you hear the sounds of drumming in one ear and a pan flute in the other!
And where else can you pick up some awesome fashion tips like these?
I didn't earn any points for my dining blog, but I was reminded about why I love Houston!
The Dining Blog
This is a blog about Dining Adventures. Sometimes, I talk about food. Below, you can read how this started.
On July 4th 2011, I set a goal to try 50 culturally diverse restaurants in one year! (I knew that was possible, living in the Houston area) I spent the year pulling in friends and family to join me, on some unusual dining adventures. I met some curious people, tried some scary foods and explored places and cultures I never would have otherwise. Even though I met my goal, I learned too much to end my adventures in dining. I have continued blogging about memorable dining adventures of all kinds, near and far... and all the discoveries and funny things I've learned along the way!
Locations and types of dining adventures, are listed further down.
