May 22, 2013- I had left the familiar hilly suburbs of Northern Virginia for a deltaic landscape dominated by canals and muggy bayous. I would call the Crescent City home as I completed my internship with Camp Restore. What would unfold over the next three months will leave a distinct mark on my life.
"Yet it is safe to say that the development of the delta country during the twentieth century... ...at whatever cost... ...will be so remarkable that the people of the whole United States can well afford, when the time comes, to build a protective levee against the Gulf waters." National Geographic, 1897
