I recently moved back to Louisiana from La Crosse, WI. Living there when Katrina and Rita hit affected me in such a way, I knew I had to move back. I just couldn't bare to stay away knowing that I could be part of something so big, rebuilding my home New Orleans. New Orleans is a very Unique city, one of its own. It's a city of so much history, dating all the way back to pirate days of Jean Lafitte to New Orleans being one of the biggest Import/Export Cities in America. And it is also one of the most courteous cities. The people her are always willing to help another person out. One of the big differences I experienced was the hospitality, just from the little things like walking on the sidewalk and saying hi to someone.
