Well of course, after returning home from a well earned Vacation, I paid for it with a helping of hell equal to the amount of happiness I enjoyed the previous week. End effect: no time to update the blog (or do laundry or anything else for that matter!)
So I'll have to post a quick finish up on New Orleans...and it goes a little something like this:
New Orleans was Fantastic! Staying with great friends, seeing great parades, drinking until we couldn't drink no more....and experiencing the lovely sights and warm, genuinely nice people of New Orleans.
We were half tempted to stay.
It was a fantastic time. And Mardi Gras was a blast!
We are already planning a trip back for the big Jazz festival. It's worth the trip for the beauty of the city, but it's a city that can really use your tourist dollars, and there is a lot to learn about how people are getting on, and our government has, and continues to treat it's poor with contempt. We heard stories that break heart. Hopefully the photos show a little of the glory and the pain that is New Orleans.
And speaking of photos. I've got over 400 of them. If you want to see some, let me know. I'm happy to share.
Thx David, Cheech, Phe, Candice and of course Kathy.
