Y'all in Louisiana
Submitted by Tiffany on 12 October, 2010 - 04:09
Bob and John Cornell took over the tag team of leading Donnaleen and myself down to the wilds of Louisiana, a ferry over the Mississippi and along a gravel track following the levees, we missed the swamp somehow, but maybe that was a good thing. We were then treated to a whirlwind of social activities from dinner with the Acadiana Dirt Riders, caught up with old friends, went to a Cajun music thing, hanging out in the street drinking beer and wine - which is such a no-no usually in America and as a highlight I was introduced to drinking rum and docs - yes Doctor Peppers (that weird fizzy drink that Americans like) mixed with rum, which was actually a nice combination.
I know Phyllis is going to be shaking her head at my interpretation of the events - thanks for being such a great hostess once again Phyliis ( I last stayed with them in Quito eight years ago on my way through Ecuador). My southern accent has been coming along nicely and is not quite as Brummie sounding as previously.
