The road is calling again. Megabus to New Orleans.
Daylight Savings Time in the US had kicked in over night, so the 7.45am departure was really 6.45am body clock time. The buffet breakfast at Crowne Plaza in Houston opens 7am on weekends so we were there waiting for them to open and then scoffed in what we could in 20 minutes before walking a couple of blocks to Megabus' Houston "department lounge", another parking lot.
The bus trip took us along US190 along the south of Texas and into Louisiana. We had a short stop at a transit centre in Lafayette, before getting into water and swamp land. The road ran over the top of the water for many many miles, see below.
