Norfolk, Virginia: We have been there too ... Our friend actually met us there, to guide us the rest of the way to North Carolina ... and to have lunch in Norfolk.

North Carolina has quite a large Latin American population actually, and many Mexican immigrants have Truck Stop Eateries in the Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Rocky Mt. areas. How far are you from there ?

Let me do some research online and look at the link you have been so kind to send ...

We shall catch up ...

Have a lovely wkend,
Ciao, Margi.
I reckon what they say is true. It really is a small world!
Rich Square is about 20 minutes from Casa de Hoot. Rocky Mount is about 60 miles away. Raleigh is about 2 hours away. Chapel Hill, about two and a half hours.
I generally travel to Norfolk when hunting for exotic ingredients and interesting things to see and do. I used to have kin there, and have many friends in that neck of the woods. I truly love Hatteras but don't get there nearly as much as I would like.
I would never have guessed that a worldly and wise traveler like you would have ever heard of Rich Square...Amazing!

Hoot, Buongiorno,

Rich Square, North Carolina: As mentioned, I would of never known of this small textile town, if it were not for a dear university friend, Mary ... She was born in this town and her family worked at the textile and sleepwear corporation located there, called Happy People.

She now lives with her husband in the Outer Banks, and her grown children are in the vicinity, her daughter in Chapel Hill and her son in Raleigh.

Life presents us with some truly wonderful experiences, and Mary and Ray are one of them ... Of course, Rich Square happened to be where she grew up ... None the less, imagine on the other foot, a Rich Square Native in MANHATTAN ! She adopted terrifically too !

Have a lovely Sunday.
Kind regards.
Ciao, Margi.
