More Louisiana Heartbreak

I lived in the New Orleans area for two and a half years, and around Shreveport for a year and a half. Because of my work, I developed some familiarity with most of Louisiana. And like I love to do, I've driven all over the state.

People from elsewhere often ask me what it was like, especially for someone who was raised in the North.

To answer that question takes hours upon hours, and I still can't seem to convey the flavor of it.

So I just give the short version: You fall in love with it, and then it breaks your heart.
