Louisiana , America

I can not personally explain America ,
So many places I have not been ,
But I can tell you about Louisiana ,
The boot in the Land of the Free,
We have swamps with beatiful Bald Cypress Trees,
With gators and snakes ,
Unforgetable sunsets on the lakes ,
Our cuisine is set apart from the rest ,
We boil seafood at it's best ,
The air filled with jazz throughout the streets ,
Mardi Gras has you dancing on your feet ,
New Orleans The city in which I stay ,
We are laid back folks in every which way ........

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Write a Poem where You live at in America lets see how many states we can get or The Place you live ..... Someone would like to know about our Beatiful Country Please share with her the Beauties it holds .......

Mardi Gras is like Carnival

Mardi Gras is like Carnival in Rio , they throw beads and other things into large crowds , we drink , party , dance , it is a very fun festive time for New Orleans , we are in Carnival season now ..I have only been to a few places Tennesse is beatiful home of the smokey Mountains , they call it the smokies because of the fog and mist that lingers over it .. We do have alot of beauty here , Italy is where you are from ? i want to visit their one day ... I am trying to get others to write something for you from where they are from ..... so just wanting on replys for them to do so .. But ask me anything you would like to know and I will try my best to answer .. Louisiana is the only state that celebrates Mardi Gras big time anyways ...

Holidays

i will be sure to e-mail you! really? it has not happened in my area of venice, but I do live on the outskirts of the city. Oh yes in Italy we have holidays, a favorite of my fiance's is fare una scampagnata which is like a picnic day in Italy. It marks the beginning of spring. Ognissanti which is all saints day we go to graves of loved ones and place flowers. Although I am one of the few christians I still do this tradition. This holiday is on November 1. On April 25, we celebrate our Festa della Liberazione. Our day of liberation it is an annual national holiday commemorating the 1945 liberation ending World War II in Italy. And us Italianos are famous for having four day weekend if a holiday is on a Tuesday or Thursday! These holidays are only a few. We have at least one or two in each month

What a fantastic idea!!!

So many of us never really think about where we live or about the pleasures and challenges of living there! How would we describe it to someone who's never been? Would we warn them to stay away or welcome them for a visit? Are you proud of you place? I would love to hear more! Tap em out! I promise I'll be listening! Cheers SS
