... just by standing there looking stupified. In fact, the woman in the visitor's center was a bit odd: she surely loved to talk, though. She went on and on. Spent a good deal of time trying to convince us to stay in Natchitoches (which she pronounced "notch-i-toosh") for the night because "We have the third best Christmas celebration in the nation after Rockefeller Plaza and Disneyworld.

... is very picturesque. In addition, it is the home of North-Western University which is a very large campus. We had dinner at Mama's Oyster House. Great dinner of gumbo, étouffée and crab cakes. Highly recommended. Many of the plantation homes still exist some of which are still private homes. Tomorrow we will head out to some of these plantations and other historic ...
