~Editilla Festivalas~ FINALLY, I's here this year! What a breath of fresh air, my first visit to the city is filled with acclimating to a different way... or speed if yous will, which has nothing to do with New Orleans, Jazz Fest or whatever. This is mo'like a big cast iron pot of South Louisiana Mother Culture. Y'all can follow my twitta and as we move about beautiful downtown Lafayette!
