At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

Carlos Crawls Cowtown

Lamb vindaloo at Maharaja; Capote; Spinach pochette at La Madeleine; bottles of Bordeaux at Majestic Liquor; Merton and Sufi poetry at Half Price Books; free samples at Rahr Brewery; gawking at exotica like Pickled Makok, Grass Jelly juice, and Pork Uteri at the Vietnamese market; worship at a toney Episcopal church in the country club district; chicken-fried steak at Lucille's. And, of course, the hospitality of a very domestically-minded host. (Your coffee is still too weak, though!)
