'Tacos Chronicles' And Their Endless Cravings

The new Netflix show will have you wanting to go to Mexico for some tacos.

'Tacos Chronicles' And Their Endless Cravings

Like everyone else, I spend my summer break from school binge-watching shows on Netflix.

Like every Mexican, I am constantly craving tacos.

What do you do when you combine both? You get Netflix's new documentary "Taco Chronicles" that will satisfy all of your taste buds and also have you craving tacos from a corner in Mexico more than anything.

The episodes range from asada to guisado in its only six episodes. Not only that, but they also take you to different parts of Mexico to learn more about their origin and every episode includes crash courses of how these tacos came to be.

The best thing about the whole show is the narrator's voice. It's not a typical voice perspective that you would hear in any traditional documentary. It is speaking from the point of view of the taco, which just makes you feel that much more connected to it.

A popular taco and episode amongst many is the asada episode that takes you on a trip from Tijuana to Hermosillo to Sonora to Downtown LA. Not only does it talk about the meat, but also the most essential part of every taco, the tortilla.

The series also brings a lot of nostalgia for people like me.

Highlighting tacos you find on a street corner reminds me hitting up taco stands at 2 a.m. with my cousins or friends after a long night out at the town, stuffing our faces with five tacos and a cold soda in a glass bottle. Or the tacos de canasta that you find on a basket attached to the back of a bike that makes a quick breakfast snack as you are walking around Mexico City on a beautiful morning.

There is no doubt that after watching this documentary, you will be left with a desire to make a trip to eat these tacos.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
