The South is steeped in tradition, rich in cultural heritage. Southern drawls range from barely perceptible to so thick and syrupy they seem to drip off the speaker like the Spanish moss drips off the trees in the Southern regions. Conjure up a land of sultry, humid days spent lazily sipping mint juleps on the veranda. A land where every occasion is remembered for the food that was served and how much of it. A land where the rolling hills of the North give way to the sprawling-for-miles flatland farms of the Delta to the Coastal regions with their white-sand beaches and that Mighty Mississippi River rolling into the Gulf of Mexico. Explore with me, if you will, the ever-changing face of the Deep South.
