Day21. Opelousas, Louisiana
After leaving New Orleans we headed for Lafayette where Liz’s good friend Moe took us to visit Jim and Christie in Opelousas, the birthplace of Zydeco. Jim transformed an old train depot into a dance hall where he and Christie regularly host Thursday night film screenings often with good food and wine. We watched Kurosawa’s haunting “Dersu Uzala” slowly unfold.
