I took a Greyhound bus down by the Mississippi Delta twenty six years ago this Spring.
It was pretty wet there, I recall.
I kept a journal...
Sunday 22nd Feb
Managed to sleep pretty well on the bus and woke to grey deluge – in Bay St Louis, running parallel to the Mississippi River through torrential rain and along a road itself flooded several inches deep, spray flung up the sides of the coach, palm trees in murk and monsoon.
...made New Orleans in time for Mardi Gras.
Dreamt of all this last night, in drizzly London.
Had been listening to Dr. John.
