A night in Cajun country allowed us to check out a museum with actual pre-war houses including slave quarters - very sad but interesting.

A highlight of the trip so far was taking an airboat through the Atchafalaya Basin (Louisiana swamp) on a sunny morning - absolutely stunning! Towards the end we stopped in a small lake where a couple of alligators swam up the the boat. The guide fed them marshmallows and could actually pat them. They may look like crocs but they sure don't act like them!

Rich's travel tip #2 - tailgating greyhound coaches gets you free wifi while driving.
