This past couple of years I have been doing a lot of traveling, both for work and for personal reasons.  Traveling is not always fun, but one thing that I am grateful for when I travel is that I get to find some off beat places to eat.  Little holes in the wall that are usually run by family members, who cook using family receipes.  The food is usually as good as the conversation with the employees as well as the other people who are frequenting the establishment.

I have found one of these places this past trip and I have eaten in there three times now and have always been served a great meal as I have enjoyed the conversation.

So today I am grateful that I have food to eat; that I am able to travel and that I am sharing some of these thoughts with you.
