NEW ORLEANS’ SWAMPS? Just imagine…

NEW ORLEANS’ SWAMPS? Just imagine…



Alligator: Southern Louisiana is full of swamplands and marshy coastal regions. It’s the perfect habitat for Alligators and they quickly became part of the everyday dining options. Alligator tastes similar to chicken or rabbit and the tenderloin, tail, ribs and other parts of the animal are used to create many different dishes like alligator Cajun spiced ribs, creole stew, fried alligator tail and more.  Try alligator pie at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage festival or to try a recipe at home, you can buy fresh gator from Cajun Grocer.  If you are really brave you can go hunt your alligator meat with an adventure from Grosse Savanne Wildlife Lodge.

Amour A Distance 

(English translations) LOVE AT A DISTANCE

Even if the distance can break couples,

Y’a that love that will keep us going …
1st couplet:

One day you meet this girl,

His beauty made you crazy,

Cupid I was his arrows,

And he took out his gun,

She lives but you do not care,

You believe in her, she believes in you,

As long as love remains strong,

Nothing separates you,

But at the slightest weakness,

The couple capsized,

Love will float on tears,

Coul’ras like a ship,

For the time being all is well,

You want her more and more,

Until the day you see her,

And you love it even more,

You take pictures of you,

Loving, kisses, grimaces,

You pass from laughter to tears,

Love makes your mask fall,

When she calls or connects you,

You always have something to say,

You could not lie to her,

So you love her to die,

Far from eyes close to the heart,

And you think it hard as a stone,

You engrave his name on walls,

Write it on whole sheets,

Her smile possesses you,

His laughter reasons in your head,

He says “I love you” on sms,

Lol oueii love makes beast

Even if the distance can break couples,

(I trust you)

Y’a that love that will hold us,

(You must keep your promises)

Even if the distance can break couples,

(You trust me)

There is love that will keep us going,

(‘I have to keep my promises)
2nd verse:

A love at a distance,

You lack cklins, lack of kisses,

If you want it’s his presence,

Its perfume makes you crazy,

His eyes miss you,

As if they allowed you to see,

When you get together,

Tears flow when you say goodbye,

Long phone calls,

You spend nights on windows live,

When the atmosphere is too hot,

The heart burns like lava,

Relation pationelle,

Basing on trust,

The slightest obstacle,

Will plunge you into mistrust,

For nothing you take the head,

You become paranoid,

Someone talks to him you hit him,

But you’re surrounded by cats,

Collects cups,

Not the strength to abstain,

What you do not know,

Because she too is lying,

Less and less you talk,

Even the more the desire to see each other,

All these promises, all these dreams,

Have turned to nightmares,

You who believed so strongly,

Give him your heart,

But you did not protect yourself,

And to break your heart.
They had promised never to leave,

(They have forgotten),

What we said was you and me, for eternity,

(Oueiii that is what we say)

We can not stand, all our promises,

( Unfortunately ),

All these I love you, so were not real …
