Coming to America: Day 1, Beaumont, Los Angeles
It is 4pm local time and we are two hours into our drive to La Quinta after enduring a 10 hour flight. I'm so tired I can barely stay on the road, so we make a stop at the next available place for refreshments, which happens to be a Dennys. Carters gets excited and orders a heap of random stuff. Eggs with hash browns, grits and pancakes. Except for the egg yolks, there is a serious white and brown colour scheme going on. After tasting the grits, I decide I'd be pretty happy if I never had to eat them again.
Sarah and I opt for veggie burgers with fries - the only other thing on the menu that isn't exclusively brown and white, and doesn't contain meat.
