Lafayette (pics) is the heart of Cajun country. It is the hub for a number of communities in southwestern Louisiana stretching to the Gulf.
The French Quarter, Bourbon Street, Gulf Shrimp, jambalaya, gumbo, music, the Mississippi River. New Orleans (pics) is all that and much more. I don’t think there’s anything new I can offer from our visit to this city. Simply, we were looking forward to this stop very much. Let’s start with the food.
