[in france. but let’s visit louisiana!]depending on what direction you are driving, you will see completely different landscapes in texas. in the north east, you’ll see… nothing. it’s rather flat. i live in the area of prairies and lakes. head south and you’ll see lots of hills. for example, austin. that is what we call the hill country. west? haven’t done that yet. but they are famous for their sunsets.
and east. you’ll see lots of trees. and that’s where you’re headed: to your neighbor, louisiana.
the brown pelican really became famous thus summer – drenched in oil. here is a happier one. all the states in america have a state bird, and the brown pelican happens to be louisiana’s because apparantly early european settlers were impressed by how nurturing the pelican ones.
and you’re getting a hint of fall.
yes. equipped with 1) GPS 2) iphone 3) yelp application 4) google, you don’t really have anything planned. you’ll do all your research on the spot.
and you’re able to find a diner. which you aren’t aware of this now, but you will later: diner food is it in louisiana. especially places with just one syllable names. straum’s. george’s. louie’s. etc. etc.
diner food consists of: breakfest foods, sandwiches, grilled cheese, burgers, just simple american stuff.
and you’ll always find a bottle of tabasco sauce on the table. which you’re used to in texas. but only now do you realize that it’s made on avery island in louisiana. imagine that!
you stay in a “carriage” style home. historically, people would park their carriages underneath the home and the actual living spaces would be on top. plus the person you’re staying with has an abandoned pony from a carousel? random, but works.
and then you’re on the road again.
