Summer Vacation 2

Yesterday we made it to Louisiana. We then visited a civil war monument, and went to bed. It's a long drive!

Today there were bayous. Lots of bayous. And Cajun music which, if you've never heard it, is a strange mix of southern accents and French.

Louisiana Bayou

A bayou. Swampy; with trees, crawdads (aka mud-bugs or crayfish) and alligators included.

Giant Tabasco Sauce Bottle

And you can't pass Avery Island without stopping at the Tabasco plant. It's near Baton Rouge, so we stopped for a break. And some jalapeno ice-cream. Weird, but tasty^^

Welcome to Texas

This sign is ironic. I mean REALLY ironic. Why? Because right after we got the key to the beach house, we were involved in a three car accident caused by a speeding pizza delivery guy. Left a giant dent in the back of the bus, and we can't open the back doors. Luckily no one was hurt, and the only one who ended up needing a tow was the pizza guy. Who also had to pay damages. And we got to meet some Texas police officers. Welcome to Texas, land of friendly drivers indeed.
