Amarillo. Home of The Big Texan, which in turn is home to the 72 oz. steak. That’s right, 4.5 pounds or 2 kg of red meat. Now that’s too much, but if you eat all your cow in one hour, its on the house. There are only two outcomes to such a meal. Either you finish it, or it finishes you. What a pleasant prospect!
I wonder how Amarillo got its name? It means “yellow” in Spanish. Nobody seems to know, but it is such a pleasant name!
Amarillo also is home to cattle. Lots of cattle and none are “amarillo”. There are feed lots everywhere and tons of manure. The aroma smacked me in the nose as I stepped outside Thursday morning! I swear, a blind man could follow his nose to Amarillo without losing his way.
I really don’t mean to disparage the town. The people or very kind and the town boasts such a rich history. I’m sure it is a very nice place to live.
But wouldn’t “vaca” be a better name?
