Day Three Hundred Fifty-Two

Louisiana - The Cajun Dome, Lafayette

Sent by: dan1066
From: Lafayette, Louisiana, USA
For: Private swap
Notes: The Cajun Dome in Lafayette Louisiana is home to the Ragin' Cajuns mens basketball team at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, as well as the Louisiana IceGators ice hockey team and the Lafayette Wildcatters indoor football team.  It can hold up to 13,500 people for concerts (fewer for basketball and hockey games), and was completed in 1985.  In 2002, a convention center was added to the arena.




Maryland - Ocean City

For: US to US Travelling Envelope Round Robin - Flight 3
Notes: Ocean City, Maryland is located along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean (I don't think that's a surprise, given the name of the city).  The population of the city is just over 7,000, but on a summer weekend, it can play host to well over 300,000 visitors.  That's quite the population jump!!  Obviously, tourism is a huge industry, and there are many resorts and hotels to accommodate the guests.  The boardwalk is the city's main shopping and entertainment district.
