French Fri Day – Getting Started

This is the first in a series I’ve decided to title French Fri Day, just for fun! And “fun” will definitely be a big part of it. I know that this one is a day late… I forgot it in a draft format yesterday so here it is anyway…

I haven’t figured it all out, yet, but I want to do something that will highlight Louisiana French heritage, its rich culture, and the fun stuff we sometimes just run across. Occasionnally, I might even write en français; I’m originally from Canada (Quebec and New Brunswick) and French is my first language.

In this series, one of my goals is to bring Louisiana’s joie de vivre to the forefront with information or comments about events, festivals, issues, or anything that might be of interest to the people here and to others around the world. Indeed, people everywhere are fascinated by Louisiana because of the diversity of its people, its beautiful landscape, the food, the music, its colorful French language, and its uniqueness as a state. I mean, where else would people be able to snap a picture like this one? (Origin of the picture unknown)

La Road Sign

Next week, I will be in the province of Quebec in the town where I grew up, visiting with family and I’ll likely be writing about poutines, little Vachon cakes, and the pizza I am sooo looking forward to eating at Prince Pizzeria in Sorel-Tracy. Truly, the best pizza in the world! In two weeks, I will be in the Lobster capital of the world, Shediac, N.B., and yes eating again but this time lobster, mussles, clams (after digging them up), poutines rapés, and just relaxing on the beach with my 3 year old daughter.

Acadian Flag

The week after that, I’m off to the 4th Congrès mondial acadien, an event happening every five years for the millions of people around the world who have Acadian connections. This year, it is taking place in the northeastern part of New Brunswick, in and around the city of Caraquet. August 15th is Acadian national day and they take the event seriously up there so it is guaranteed to be something to remember. I hope to write and post pictures while traveling in the next three weeks. Until the next French Fri Day…

A bientôt!
