Lost Tacos – What I Do When Uber Times Me Out


Uber takes me far and wide around the Bay Area and sometimes I just don’t have a clue as to where I might be. That’s when I put on my explorer hat, park the car, and take a walk.

When I travel I usually have a daily goal – see this one thing, or look for a series of one thing, especially when I’ve got my camera with me. When Uber sticks me in a town I’ve never been in before, or even after a long ride, I set off looking for my favorite lunch (at lunch time) or snack (any other time of the day), tacos.

Being a vegetarian/vegan sets of alarms when ordering tacos. The people behind the counter don’t know what to do with that – grilled veggies? rice and beans? beans, cheese, salsa? I usually order them up as rice and beans tacos with guacamole. Most of the time I forget to hold the cheese, which is why I am “sometimes” vegan. The other day the guy behind the counter added guacamole “instead of meat” so I think from now on, when they ask me what kind of meat I want on my taco I’m going to respond with “guacamole”!
