This is my third time taking this program. Last year I brought 11 friends with me and this year I am bringing 26. We all belong to the international women's group 5W and love meeting new people. We are from Australia, NZ, Germany, Canada, Scotland, England and the US. See you in a few days.

My wife, Edie Querido, are attending this program and two others;one in Natchez and then back to Lafayette on Wildlive and Culture. Is anybody else doing these programs? If so are you planning to visit particular places, events in that area?
