I spent over an hour walking around the grounds and inside of the Louisiana State Capitol Building. The grounds are well manicured and peaceful. The inside of the building is ornate. I saw the assassination spot and resting place of Huey P. Long (famous governor of Louisiana responsible for the capitol building being built). I went up on the observation deck (27th floor) and looked at Baton Rouge from above. I’ll have a gallery of pictures to show later.
While I was walking around the grounds, a big man in gym clothes was walking toward me. Then he started running toward me and looking at me. I was scared he was going to knock me over and steal my camera bag which serves as my purse while I’m on vacation.
He was getting closer, so I started almost running away. It was more like skipping because I wasn’t fully convinced he was a bad man yet. He smiled at me, and said “How’re you doing?” as he trotted past me. I smiled back, and said, “Good.” Then I laughed because I probably looked silly skipping away from him.over 7 years ago
