As we headed towards Bonnaroo on our first day of the Teysha Tour, we passed big Texas skies and wide open pastures. When the sun began to sink as we neared the Arkansas border, we saw fields filled with sunflowers, turning their heads towards the last rays.

Along the way, we pulled over at Czech Stop, in the tiny Texas town of West. Pastrami sandwiches, pickled pigs feet, and best of all, kolaches, line the shelves of the glass counters inside. Kolaches are sweet pastries traditionally filled with fruit, but Czech immigrants to Texas started putting meat and cheese inside, too. This little place is definitely keeping earth weird by representing the Czech spirit. Sophie recommends the blueberry kolache, Anna recommends the pecan kolache, and Travis recommends the ultimate Czech-Tex snack – the pulled pork Kolache.
