Add one more the the list of states with a skyscraper for a capitol building. I really enjoyed my stay in Louisiana, especially New Orleans, which ranks right up there with my favorite cities visited. I would like to go there during Mardi Gras. The Bayou is ominous and seems to go on forever. And the Superdome, well, I couldn't fit it in my viewfinder from where I was. But the French Quarter was the best and most interesting place in the state for me. New Orleans and the French Quarter are on another page.
