Adventure in the Bayou

I'll be heading to Louisiana, USA on 2nd January with Lehigh University's WinterServe group to work with Warren County Habitat for Humanity (HFH). We hope to build houses for the victims of Hurricane Katrina in Slidell. Read more about HFH in http://www.habitat.org/disaster/OHD/

What a way to start 2007: A new Spring semester at Lehigh, my next volunteer stint at St Luke's Hospital, the Fulbright enrichment program, the MCAT, the Grand Canyon beckons... and of course to kick it off, my adventure in the Bayou!


*A bayou is a small, slow-moving stream or creek. Bayous are usually located in low-lying areas, for example in the Mississippi River delta region of the southern USA. The word was first used by the French in Louisiana and is thought to originate from the Choctaw word "bayuk" which means "small stream".
