Off to Alexandria with a pause for a quick bite. Then on to the City of Lights for sister number one. Then on to Shreveport via old Hwy 1to see the farms, old barns, pecan orchards, and falling down depots. I think we may have spotted four depots. We were driving parallel with the railroad. We somehow missed Shreveport's downtown area because we had to reroute around a train and the city was behind us as we looped through Barksdale AFB. Thanks to google maps for the lowdown on the roads.

If you haven't been to Louisiana, you're missing out on wonderful architecture both old and new. Shreveport/Bossier City is one of those places where the old and new mingle like guests at a dinner party.
Come for dinner. We'll eat crawfish (it's in season) and travel some of the old roads so you can see the real beauty of Louisiana.
