2. The state of Louisiana which is parted in five regions
I'm going to live in the Cajun Country
3. Each region is separated in parishes
I'm going to the Parish of St Martin
4. To make it a little bit clearer,
I'll be in number 11, as you can see there are 22 parishes in Cajun Country
I hope that you're not bored :))
I'm supposed to stay in Louisiana for three years, so I'll try to make this blog as attractive as possible, I'll try to tell you about the culture, the place, the music, the history and so on...
Do not hesitate to post comment, ask questions, share experiences

I had a connection in Atlanta, I had never seen so many planes landing in a minute... it was just crazy, traffic, traffic everywhere...
I had to run to catch the connection to Baton Rouge...
I saved the best part for last: they left my three suitcases in Atlanta, I wasn't the only one, but still... :-(
So, when I get them tomorrow, I will tell you some more about my first feelings...

The official language is French, but creole is widely spoken

I called the airport to figure out if I could catch the last flight which was at 9.30pm. It was possible so we made it to the party...
Jean-Philippe Marthely (one of the lead singers of Kassav' band) made everybody jump, dance, scream, sing...
My friends and I had a couple of drinks and I wasn't too sure to be able to make it to the airport, but I made it....

We started hiking around 6.00 am, we had a nice weather, it was warm... It's was a three hour hike with many hills , and of course we had to go down on some slippery paths too.
From the hills, we had a great view of some parts of Barbados. You'd better not be afraid of height.
One of the hikers was wearing this tee shirt, so even if you felt like stopping, you just kept on walking...
Our body guard ( just kidding) was checking on us...
Anyway, we had to walk through bushes, watch out for trees and leaves that have stings, we really had fun...
Nature was just so beautiful...

I bought Afterburn written by Zane (a very special writer, I won't tell you more ;)
On my way to the store, I saw many buses going to Speightown or to Bridgetown, so here are some pictures, so that you can have an idea of what buses in Barbados look like.

Today, I met a young man called Shearvon, he is from St Lucia.
I had not laughed like this for so long, let me tell you why...
According to some people, when you don't have money, you'd better not enter boutiques, because obviously you are not going to buy.
So, Shearvon was putting it that way: you'd better be a windowshopper ;)
but do not envy the ones who are able to buy.
One of his favorite songs seems to be windowshopper from Fifty cents, don't ask me why...

She owns a boutique "Bohemia Collections", which is located in the Hilton Hotel in St Michael (outside of town).
Make a stop there, she simply brights up the saddest person's day, no kidding...)))
By the way, this is a great hotel, you have a wonderful view of Bridgetown, the capital city.
Flying fish and fish cakes are famous meals in Barbados , I just love this food.

I was really excited, could not wait to get there, needless to say that I woke up very early.
Second picture from the plane, I'm already dreaming of the wonderful day that I'm going to spend.
