LOUISIANA Early French Crossword Puzzle
Where do I begin? The Early French is a good place as any, but for me it is not until mid-October before I even get there due to my work with Geography, Cultue, Festivals, , etc. When we think of Louisiane's Early French I tend to think of our own local language and my wife's ancestry, her family goes back to the 1755 expulsion which left her family migrating to Cameron parish and ultimately to Calcasieu.
I think about those people and for the sacrifice they made getting here, to our state. But I also think about the items they left the state such as seafood, tourism, music, language, culture, and so much more, I have always loved teaching the parishes, parish seats, festivals, ethnic groups, cities, waterways, highways and everything revolving around them that makes our great state so special. I love talking about the food, the music, the art, the languages, the religions, the things that bind us together.
If I'm going to talk to my students about our state's people but I will start with our geography first then I have to be able to talk about the weather, our location, our Gulf of Mexico, the history, the landmarks, the regions, the parks, the writers, the photographers, the plantations, the ghosts, the cemeteries, the hills the mountain, the swamps, the beaches, the forests, the…well the list just goes on and on and on. At least from my perspective it does. I have traveled through each and every parish and taken thousands and thousands of photos.
This state has never been enough for me. There is always one more place to travel to and see and photograph. I love the website Only In Louisiana firstname.lastname@example.org it keeps me well-grounded and gives me even more places to travel to. Know your state. I do, at least until my next road trip.
I love the various cultures-tribes around this state and I'm trying to wrap my head around our newest influx of people/workers from the southwest. They are not French but I will get over it as I hear them speak in their native tongue in our local Walmart, shops, restaurants, and other places. Then, I have to talk about our state government dealing with our local spending which leads to our infrastructure which leads to our state finances with leads to….you get the picture.
