Welcome from Texas! I have spent copious time in all of south LA. I'm in love with the festivals (read food and music) as well as the cultures. One of my fondest memories was a road trip pre-Katrina coming up from Grand Isle, did a side trip through Dulac, coming around a blind corner in the marsh, I braked to watched as a gazillion crabs scuttered across the road, it was magical! Be careful about that invitation LOL, I didn't get down that way this year and am always looking for a good excuse LOL. You will enjoy the site and the knowledge base is amazing!
