"Nice place to spend a day..."
Ruston has a nice (little) downtown, a good coffee shop, and a lot of blind people. After a few hours I had seen all there is to see. Downtown had few empty storefronts which plague most small towns I visit. Louisiana Tech (Tech) being located close to downtown gives it some young enery.
The coffeeshop girl said there is an 'international' school for the blind downtown and a program at LA Tech for teaching braille. She didn't know waht made the school 'international'.
