Earlier this year I mentioned a city which is lovely but often passed over for Amsterdam when one is visiting the Netherlands. I'm back again to mention that New Orleans is not the only thing south Louisiana has to offer. If you ever make it down this way you really ought to venture out of the city to experience the beautiful land and unique culture of bayou country. Here are a few things I love about visiting the place of my birth:
Bayous - they are absolutely gorgeous! You must see them before they are gone. (rising sea levels and all)
And I ought not forget Live Oaks, Cypress trees, and the general gorgeousness of the countryside
How everyone calls everyone babe, baby, or just ba' if they can't be bothered with the whole word.
How "alright" is equivalent to "you're welcome."
West Main Pizza - you wouldn't believe the perfectness of the crust or the sheer volume of the toppings (ever had seafood pizza? well, me neither cuz I hate seafood but I hear it's good:)
LSU Tiger fans
Getting in the car very early in the morning to catch a flight and, on the way, watching the sun rise over the bayous. I just can't describe how gorgeous it is.
There's more but my hush puppies are getting cold...
What region never ceases to amaze and delight you?
