Louisiana, Mississippi

October 16, 2012

In the center of town in Lafayette the city signs and street signs are in French.

Near Lafayette is Breaux Bridge, a pretty little town with an interesting-looking draw bridge.

Martin Lake, outside Breaux Bridge, has all the stereotypical swampy stuff we associate with Creedence Clearwater songs (e.g. Born on the Bayou).

We made it into Mississippi.

We crossed over the Mississippi river again (the last time was from Illinois into Iowa, at Davenport) and drove through Baton Rouge which is the location of one of the largest oil refineries in the country.

In Natchez we admired the Mississippi river at sundown.

We drove around looking for a fun place to have dinner but ended up at Ruby Tuesday's. We did get a little local flavor because we had a hard time understanding what the wait staff were saying.

I would be interested to know if they pronounce all those french words the same way you would...or indeed if anyone from France would recognize them if they were spoken instead of written. Esp as the english they speak in that region has quite a twist to it!
