More About United States of America
The United States of America is a country that needs no introduction, for most people. From a very young age, no matter where we were in the world, American culture has influenced us in one way or the other, more so now with the growing use of social media such as Youtube, Twitter and Facebook. The country is made up of 50 states, each with their own governors and regulations which also leads to the diversity in sub-cultures. My first visit to the US was in 2016 when I flew stateside for work. As I was already in the country, I extended my trip to explore this country, which I felt I knew so much, through growing up on American TV and their strong media influence, was I in for a few surprises. I visited towns/cities in Texas and California. I can’t explain my experience more clearly than, ‘I felt like I was living inside my TV’.
If you are a food lover, I challenge you to find out the foods that are most popular in the states/cities you visit and try it out. While I was in San Antonio, I had to try their BBQ and some TexMex – San Antonio had some of the best margaritas I have ever had outside of Mexico. While in San Francisco, I could not leave without trying their famous clam chowder and sourdough bread. Most places I went to had great food but it is a great opportunity to also try out unique food experiences that one is unlikely to find in other places. Think ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ or ‘Food vs Man’ or search for the restaurants with the historical/cultural stories to amplify your senses with a dash of nostalgia.
