Hi all,

 

Got a one week working trip to Hammond in Louisiana coming up next week, flying from England Tuesday. So will have the weekend free in the area.

 

With limited time is there anything I must see?

Food I have to try?

 

Never been to the states before so really looking forward to this..

Yes, the food is delicious there, but I believe you will be genuinely taken aback by the kind and thoughtful nature of so many that live in the area. My last trip through Shreveport was a joy just because the people there were genuinely and generously so abundantly kind and thoughtful.

 

Enjoy and welcome to the USA! :salute:

And about 90 miles east of where you're staying is Gulfport, Mississippi. Home to some very nice Casinos. Bring lots of money, but remember. Where you are staying, and around the casinos, it's hurricane season. Anything can happen.

Thanks all,

I've only had the English version of cajun, but I love spice and chillies so I think I might need to book a wider seat for the flight home!!

Never had "gumbo" so I'll be looking for that.

 

I've driven in Europe (Spain, France) and they also drive on the wrong side of the road, so if you're around the area in the next few weeks, make sure your insurance is up to date as thier may be a mad Englishman (well Cornishman to be precise, but they won't recognise it as a country, long story) on the wrong/right side of the road!!

 

Cheers..

welcome to LA, one bit of advice is that all the people here are not ALL nice in terms. be cautious of your political and religious views in conversation with locals. LOL

 

seafood is good here, but half of everything is fried, so watch out for that if you have a bad heart *grinz*

 

and try not to loose to much at the casinos

 

also, don't get involved in a hand of booray, you can loose some SERIOUS cash there, i'm out quite a bit myself, lol.

Welcome to The States nigsy!! You simply must try some gumbo of any sort, I have a fetish for Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, and sometimes I toss in some shrimp too....also have a taste of this if given the chance. ;)

Gotta try some boiled crawfish, new potatoes, and niblet corn, along with some red beans and rice and be sure to suck them crawfish heads!!!

 

:geezer:
