"Welcome to Louisiana, Bienvenue en Louisiane"
USA
The title is what's on the sign when you cross over the Mississippi River. This is of the Welcome Center rest area on the westbound side of Interstate 20 near Tallulah, LA. The signs in the photo describe the Mississippi River campaign and the siege of Vicksburg across the river in Mississippi during the American Civil War in the 1860's. this rest area has restrooms (toilets), pay phones, vending machines, picnic tables, and Louisiana tourist information. This was an interesting photo to take as i had to do it around a light pole without showing it. You can see the shadow in this photo.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
