Goose Bayou – Days 3 & 4

During our second day in Lafitte, we were invited by Mr. Roubin Maise, Jr., a former DEA Agent, and his neighbor Mr. Lindburg Santini, a shrimp fisherman, to visit Lower Lafitte and experience what it was like to live in their community in the aftermath of Hurricane Isaac.

We spent two days living in near 100 degree heat and 100% humidity.  We ate MREs, patiently waited for ice and water delivers by the Jefferson Parish  Police Department, and for the restoration of electricity and phone service .  To pass the time we interviewed their neighbors, explored the flood and wind damage, shot a lot of video and took a ton of pictures.
