I probably should write some colorful post about the people, sights, food and music of Louisiana. About my meeting every type from wealthy executives to real-life swamp people. Puffy confections to spicy cajun boudin sausage. The Jazz, blues and Zydeco. The bayou and the Big Easy. Or even the rain, emerging spring and mosquitoes. I experienced so much in the short time I walked across Louisianna but each day, even days when I was stopped by weather, I couldn't hide from the truth; diabetes is big and getting bigger. My walking adventure was born from loosing friends and family to the ravages of diabetes. One big truth I have found is by getting active, staying active everyone can benefit.
