Nothing was really going to beat a weekend in New Orleans, but a night in Lafayette was nonetheless pleasantly interesting. At 18 USD a night, a dorm at the Blue Moon Saloon (recommended by Gail) was a great way to claw back some money after my lavish weekend, and a great way to meet lots of interesting people. I hooked up with Ex-US Navy guy Charles for a few beers and 3lb of crawfish at Randols, and almost got accosted into a dangerous looking beginners Cajun dancing class. Now I know that’s a great place to go when I’m fat, bald and over 60! (OK, I’m already one of those 3, so 2 to go!).
