Re:The "Favorite State" Poll
I live in Illinois which has a fantastic diverse variety of places to eat but I voted for New Mexico because 35 years ago when I first traveled there, it was such an interesting and different cuisine that I was used to. I'm not talking a burger from Bobcat Bite which I have never had and don't care to, I can get plenty of burgers here and other places similar, but true New Mexican food. Posole from a little roadside place in Corrales that had horses tied up on a post out front and all locales inside. Little places in Cerrillos with a dirt street out front and Tesuque when the market there was a post office, a tiny restaurant, tiny store and it was the town center. That was interesting and unique food and worth traveling to. That's the reason for traveling, to see and eat something different.
