How long would it take a freighter or cargo ship to travel from New Orleans, Louisiana to Venice, Italy?
I am a fiction writer and my ususal research sources have failed me on this occasion. I’m just looking for a ballpark estimate from New Orleans to Venice with maybe one refueling stop if necessary.
It depends entirely on how fast the ship can travel. A ship that travels at 20 knots covers about 500 miles per day, and would make it from New Orleans to Venice in about 14 days. A ship moving at 10 knots would take twice the time. And so on.
Note that a realistic "refueling stop" would be the port of Algeciras, in southern Spain. That would be about 9 days out from New Orleans at 20 knots. When passenger liners traveled between the Med and NY they would stop at Algeciras before starting the trans-Atlantic "speed run".
Remember that it takes a ship 8 to 12 hours to travel from New Orleans to the mouth of the Mississippi. A "pilot" is required for that trip: http://www.crescentpilots.com/

Not all Indian Resevations welcome visitors and I want to go to a reservation on my vacation and learn something of their culture.I’m driving so I would prefer to be closer to Louisiana. I’ve been to Cherokee N. Carolina and really enjoyed the set up there. someone took us around and showed us around and explained thing as we went along. I would like to learn about the other nations as well. I have tried searching and am not too good at it, so I am at a loss. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You
Try the Matta’poni Indian Reservation in King William County, Virginia. The Shaman is John Sun Eagle and his Wife Gentlewind. They are a lovely couple and they welcome all without making reservations..(small joke) but, seriously, they are great people! Check out the Mattaponi Reservation online, go to any search engine, yahoo, google, and you will find their site describing their reservation, history, ect..
The Chief is Chief Webster Little Eagle. We use to go every weekend to see them. They usually have other people there from all over the world. It is great, we are originally from new york city, and we have met people on his reservation from Ireland, France, Spain, Peru, England, it’s amazing how many connections you make from people that are interested in the Native American Indian Culture.
Try also yahoo’s search, type in John and Sharon Sun Eagle on Mattaponi Indian Reservation and see if they have another site up. They also sponsor kids from other Reservations.
If you ever really want to travel the distance, try heading toward the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota during the Summer time or during the "Gathering of the Nations" Pow Wow, all full bloods participate in that pow wow, it is beyond amazing!!
The Indians at Mattaponi will give you more information concerning other reservations you may visit and attend their pow wows. usually their schedules are online..just type in indian pow wows and the state you would like to visit.
I hope this info helps you out some.
Good luck on your next trip!
feel free to ask me about more info regarding the Res.
In this video, Betty describes how to make delicious Peppery Jambalaya. If you like spicy rice and smoked sausage, you will love this!
2 packages of boil-in-bag precooked rice, uncooked
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/4-inch diagonal slices
1 1/3 cups chopped cooked ham
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
14 1/2 oz. can beef broth
1/4 teaspoon black pepper (You may use more, for hotter flavor)
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (You may use more, for hotter flavor)
Prepare the rice, according to package directions. Drain, and cover with aluminum foil to keep it warm. While the rice is cooking, combine 1 pound smoked sausage, 1 1/3 cups chopped ham, 2 stalks of chopped celery, 2 cloves of minced garlic, and 1 chopped onion in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven. Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly, until sausage is browned and the vegetables are tender. Now, add 14 1/2 oz. beef broth, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper in a large deep skillet or Dutch oven. (You may increase these each to 1/2 teaspoon, but it will be *very* hot!) Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cooked rice. Serve on a nice serving plate with French bread. Enjoy, y’all!

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Faux French Beignets. This is a quick and easy way to make chocolate beignets, using ordinary ingredients from your kitchen, and you don’t need to be a French pastry chef to make these! I found out how to make these by watching a TV show, “Chefs of the Bluegrass,” which had a segment featuring Furlongs, an upscale restaurant in Lexington, Kentucky. The theme of the restaurant is thoroughbred racing, but the style of food is Cajun. This is a great place to find wonderful jambalaya or etoufee! The owner and the chef are both from the New Orleans area, and they offered this quick recipe for beignets on the “Chefs of the Bluegrass” show, and I wanted to pass it along to you!
canned refrigerated biscuits
semisweet chocolate chips
Remove regrigerated biscuits from their can. Individually, stretch each biscuit into a circle of dough. Place a few chocolate chips on the dough. Fold the dough in half, enclosing the chocolate chips. Use your fingers to pinch the edges together, so that you have a crescent of dough that completely encloses the chocolate chips. Make sure there are not holes in the dough or gaps in the edges. Meanwhile, heat about 1 inch of peanut oil in a heavy pot to 350 degrees. When the oil is hot enough, carefully place a chocolate-filled crescent into the hot oil. The dough of the crescent should sizzle. The beignet will cook very quickly. When it is brown on the bottom, let it roll over in the oil to brown the other side. When brown on both sides, remove from oil, and place on paper toweling to drain. Quickly roll the beignet in a container of confectioner’s sugar to coat all over. The beignet is ready to eat! You may do several at a time and place them on a nice serving plate. They are excellent when served warm, but still great after they have cooled. Enjoy!!! –Betty
