Day 3: Catfish Dinner
Catfish, which is rarely available back home in Sg is rather popular here, with restaurants dedicated to it. Randall’s dad brought us to Murry’s, a catfish restaurant just outside Lonoke. I had a half dinner (3 planks deep fried), along with some excellent onion rings and fried okra – that’s lady’s fingers back home. It was pretty good, although a tad too salty.
Had earlier in the afternoon gone to UALR School of Law – both for a toilet break as well as to have a look-see. Nice facilities, definitely better than the main campus (where one of the corridors at Stabler Hall actually smelt of fried chicken and toilet detergent).
Also managed to drop by the MacArthur Museum of Military History in an old building once known as the Little Rock Arsenal. Can’t seem to remember much of it 2 days later, although I recall the former governor Sid something was quite good-looking, although Randall said he looked kind of fruity. 😛
Road trip to New Orleans coming up!
