Audrey Babineaux George, is Typical 21st century Cajun. In approximately 1660, my Ancestor, Nicolas Babineau Left France for the colonies of Canada.   Decendants of 'Nicolas' 100 years later, were exiled from Canada by the British. My family consisted of ten girls and seven boys. We were all French-speaking and were brought up to value our French language and culture. I am currently retired as a high school teacher of French, Spanish, and English. Among my most prized personal achievements; serving as State Supervisor of Foreign Languages and receiving the Academic Palms by the French Government.

I am currently a member of the Terrebonne Parish Council for the Development of French in Louisiana, a state agency whose basic objective is to strengthen culture, tourism, and economic ties between Louisiana and French-speaking countries namely, Canada, France and Belgium. I operate two agencies at this time. The first one is called: A La Maison Cajun Bed & Breakfast Association. It consists of 40 families who can receive four to eight persons at a time. The second company is called 1 Authentic Cajun Tour!, and its basic purpose is to assist tour agents plan their stay in South Louisiana as long as they lodge their clients in our French-speaking homes. Presently, we can lodge up to 75 persons per day. We receive at least l00 buses of French visitors annually. Therefore, if the charm of Louisiana interests you, do not hesitate contacting me. See you soon, and Laissez les bons temps rouler! Let the good times roll !
