A Trip to Domino's Pizza
Well, guys, I couldn't stand it -- I had to find out if Dominos Pizza in Mexico tastes the same as Dominos Pizza in Texas. Many, many years ago when we lived in Indonesia, we went to Pizza Hut but it just wasn't the same. However, I am happy to report that Mexican Dominos pizza tastes just like Dominos pizza back in the States. I had a very pleasant and interesting experience while waiting for my pizza. I sat down at a long table with a Mexican family and came to find out that they had lived in Pasadena, Texas and their oldest son spoke very good English. It was nice being able to chat with them. After I got my pizza, a little boy from another table brought me a disposable plate (see picture)to put my slice of pizza on. I had noticed that everyone else had one but I didn't -- it was really thoughtful of this young family to notice and provide for the "gringo"! I've been made to feel so welcome by everyone I've met, foreigners and locals alike -- even when we can't communicate well, the locals I've met have gone out of their way to be very helpful. For that, I'm truly thankful!
