What We Loved This Week: The Texas Rangers, Willian Finnegan, and Lunch at Singapore’s Embassy

I’ve been sifting through old travel photos this week, and I came across a snapshot that I’d completely forgotten about, from the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. I still love this quote:
What do I love this week? The Texas Rangers, of course! Although as a native New Yorker transplanted in Texas, my two cultural identities find themselves in deep conflict. Still, I can justify my allegiance to the Texas team because I was a Mets fan back in my New York days. Go Rangers!
Lunch at the Singapore Embassy. After living in the Washington D.C. area for more than four years, I finally made it to a function at one of the embassies. Another milestone experienced over lunch: My first Singapore Sling. Tasty.
William Finnegan’s excellent New Yorker story about Tijuana. While it doesn’t make you want to run down for a visit, it’s a fascinating (and deeply troubling) piece.
