Lunch Feast on the Ruta del Tequila
It was a long day. We got lost in the car for three hours in and around Tesistan (which is not, as you might guess, a central asian country, rather it's a dusty town on the ruta del tequila) looking for various haciendas. We did find everything we needed, and after that we needed some serious grub. We decided to go somewhere we already knew and liked - this place which is in the town next to Tequila. Everything they have here is good. Zack, in a moment of starving gluttony, ordered a kilo of Carnitas - braised/fried little pork rib scraps, essentially. We did not finish the carnitas, so we brought them with us in a bag back to tequila, thinking that some of those nice dogs wandering around the town might partake in a fatty snack. Sure enough, those carnitas disappeared quickly enough.
North America includes Mexico, the United States, Canada, and Gotham City.
The region temporarily existed as a Protectorate of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, with its capital being the city of San Francisco. Sadly, this term of benevolent ebullience lasted a brief two decades and ended c. 1880.
The United States is now the dominant country of North America. It arose as a nation only 225 years ago after a successful rebellion against the British government under King George III.
From a distance, it appears that the eastern coastlines of North and South America fit exactly into the west coast of Africa. In fact, about 250 million years ago these continents really were all connected in one land mass that we have named Pangaea.
With such a foundation in tectonic unity, there is no doubt that someday soon the people on every continent of earth will realize their fundamental similarities. Expect massive leaps in creative output in your area!
