People From the Road – Scott Hanson

I am a true believer of learning through experiences. The southern culture has always been something foreign to me. So over spring break I decided to take a road trip. I started out in Missouri and made my way south through Arkansas and across Louisiana to New Orleans. I spent a few days in the New Orleans area. I then headed west across Louisiana and into Texas. I stayed a few days on the beach in Galveston, Texas. I ended up driving 2,400 miles round trip zigzagging the back roads of the Midwest and Southern U.S. I was amazed at how many diverse cultures I was able to experience in such a short time.

I spent one afternoon walking some of the areas in New Orleans, which were affected by hurricane Katrina. The damage was easily visible. Many of the home still sat vacant, many had been torn down leaving behind empty lots littered with debris.
