Different Strokes

Ways to know the conference you are involved in is being held in Louisiana:

  • The Starbucks in the hotel complements its assortment of sugar-free syrups with a half-dozen liqueurs to add to your coffee.
  • The morning break at the conference offered only Bloody Mary's and another alcohol-laden drink.
Just a good in-my-face reminder of the different norms and customs one may need to get accustomed to when stepping into others' worlds.
