Occasionally, it’s important to just drop everything and take a break. I decided to do just that this weekend because of the beautiful weather forecast. Restaurants started opening back up again in Massachusetts, so we decided to go get Mexican food at El Pelon in Boston. During my time at Northeastern University, I probably ate at El Pelon over fifty times. Initially, we were going to get takeout. When we arrived, no one was sitting outside on the terrace, so we decided to eat there before going home. I never knew eating a burrito could feel so nostalgic.
I have to say that eating at a restaurant felt extremely weird. It’s crazy to think it’s been almost half a year since I last ate at a restaurant. Like I said in a post a few weeks ago, the COVID-19 pandemic has really put things into perspective – a reminder to appreciate the simple things in life.
