November 3 is a bellweather date in the history of man.
I could not be prouder to announce, a bit late, that Chowpapi is now 6 years of age. In that time I’ve written 511 articles from countries all over the world like Turkey, Croatia and The Netherlands
Of course the bulk of the writing has taken place in the Deep South and Texas-two areas of the US that I’ve called home my entire life.
Thanks for reading y’all. I’m going to go in the kitchen and bake myself a cake.
