Our new trip on the Caddo Lake can even be called amusing. The lake remained as beautiful as a couple of years ago, but the only thing that bothered me this time, was the presence of alligators in it. I do not know if they were there on our first visit, or they were transported there by someone until we arrived again, but now it’s a fact. On the Caddo Lake live alligators.

About the Caddo Lake, which is located on the borders of the State of Texas and Louisiana, we learned from the friends. Caddo Lake Is located just 32 miles from Shreveport, Louisiana, and is a state park.
According to history, this lake is named for the Indian tribe named Caddo, that lived in the lake until they were expelled from there in the 19th century. One of the notable features of the Caddo Lake is are flooded cypress forests. They create a romantic atmosphere and attract tourists to this lake.
New Orleans is a city in which “there is no reason not to drink.” Such a number of holidays, parades and parties that organise in this city I have not seen yet any where. By the way, because of this, the Americans called New Orleans “The Big Easy”, this name very clearly emphasises the free atmosphere of the city and the light-heartedness of its locals. During the day, the city looks like a normal metropolis, and in the evening turns into the kingdom of fun and debauchery.
I even could not imagine that in Shreveport you can find so much entertainment. But I was wrong. I spent a lot of time in Shreveport, to have time to visit all its attractions, but the most interesting and funny happened to me a week before my leaving from the United States, ironically.
Roses… Idea to visit “Gardens of the American Rose Center” visited me often, but for various reasons I constantly postponed it. One day in the spring, finally I got into the car and drove there.
Gardens of the American Rose Center is located near the city of Shreveport, Louisiana. In May, in the southern part of America it is already quite hot, so I decided to go to there early in the morning, just to be sure I can take a walk easy and enjoy the view of roses.
Bonnie and Clyde, I think in this world, everyone at least once heard about this criminal couple. Maybe not everyone knew the history of them, but to hear… It’s passed been more than 80 years, from May 23, 1934 when Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were ambushed and were shot by the Texas Rangers and officers from Louisiana on a rural road in Bienville, Louisiana, United States.

In this city lives about 200 thousand people. The population predominantly African-Americans.
