Estonians in Texas

Got a call out of the blue yesterday from some film makers from Estonia wanting to come by for a visit.  They are filming all across the Texas/Mexico border.  Turns out the guy in charge (Herbert Murd) has been visiting the area for a number of years and owns a Texas themed restaurant in Tallinn, Estonia.  91,101,60,0,B

Overseas, it’s best to introduce yourself as a Texan, rather than an American. Instant cred, no matter what they think of the U.S.

Entrepreneurs. Impressive.

Queen Charlotte of England (1700's-1800's) is the 3-great grandmother of Queen Elisabeth and was black. Her black relatives from the royal family of Portugal married German royalty who then married English royalty. (My Arab ancestors left North Africa 50,000 years ago according to DNA National Geographic. Later they wandered in a haplo group in Syria with Luke of the Bible, son of a doctor. And so on.)

I went to their website. I want to go to Estonia just to try out their chili! The Tejano music playing was pretty cool, too.

Missed your Tuesday post somehow, but found it very interesting you had visitors from Estonia. I worked for several years (in Houston) with a young lady from Estonia. She and her father came to the US many years ago. I had never heard of Estonia before meeting her and now you are having visitors in the Big Desert from her fellow countrymen. Estonians obviously have good taste in travel.
