Where Soul Lives

We found it. In seafood gumbos and praline pies. In three hundred year old oak trees and one hundred year old recipes. In creole plantations and slave cabins. In mint juleps and mango daiquiris. In jazzy tunes and the good ole' blues. In steamboat rides along the Mississippi river. In beads and bosoms (and bare behinds!) on Bourbon.

And then, of course, there's the other "soup" for the soul.

It took us three plane rides and twenty-six hours to get here from home but we think it was well worth the trek.
