Yoakum, Texas

Day 287 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

Today my wife and I, along with her brother and his wife traveled to a funeral in Yoakum, Texas. Although it was a sorrowful occasion, I was glad my wife was able to visit with many relatives on her side of our family. The small town of Yoakum actually has an interesting history. At one time Texas was governed by Mexico, and a league of land granted to John May in 1835, and it was used as a gathering place for cattle to be driven up the Chisholm Trail. Lots of Texas cowboy history there.

Ascolta Questo:
  • Oggi mia moglie ed io siamo andati a un funerale a Yoakum, in Texas.
    Today my wife and I traveled to a funeral in Yoakum, Texas.
  • Nonostante fosse una triste occasione, sono felice che mia moglie sia riuscita a visitare molti dei suoi parenti.
    It was a sorrowful occasion, yet I am glad my wife was able to visit with many of her relatives.
  • La storia della piccola città di Yoakum risale all'epoca in cui i cowboy e il loro bestiame percorrevano il Chisholm trail nei primi anni del 1800.
    The small town of Yoakum has a history going back to the era of cowboys and cattle drives up the Chisholm Trail in the early 1800's.
