Thu/Fri Apr 24-25: attended Thurs & Fri of Jazz Fest
Fri Apr 25: left Fri evening for Lafeyette... arrived early enough to catch the end of Festival International de Louisianne Stayed in the Auberge Creole in Lafayette. It was a little too authentic.
Sat Apr 26: Switched to Chez Des Amis in Breaux Bridge. Much nicer. Atteneded the Festival International
Sun Apr 27: Decided we were more interested in a lazy morning in Breaux Bridge than a race back to catch the last day of Jazz Fest. We took our time driving back and visited the Houmas House Plantation. We finished up our trip staying at the Hotel Monteleon in the French Quarter.
