The last thing i’ll say about Utah: it is surprisingly and enormously diverse. Throughout, we met folks from all parts of the world speaking broken English.
The most memorable was a beautiful young Asian lady in McDonald’s. we stopped for a coke as we were walking from the hotel to whole foods. We weren’t sure we were going the right way so I asked her.
“Whole Foods?? Oh yes, we have!!” She said enthusiastically. she turned around with a sweep of her waist length hair and displayed the menu in a graceful gracious way showing us with pride all the foods she had to offer on the macdonalds sign above and behind her . We smiled and decided a coke was enough thanks.
Josh explained the diversity was due to a generous refugee program here. Go Utah! Ill take my dinosaurs with my “god” but other than that difference I’m all for the state.
