Day 1 - New Orleans, Lousiana

Flew in to New Orleans today. I haven't been here since 1987 and from what I remember some things are the same (The French Quarter) and some things are quite different. Of course, Tony and I thought about Hurricane Katrina and all the devestation that happened down here, but the people are wonderfully friendly and the city seems to be recovering.

It's now 12:36 my time and I'm really tired, but I'm so excited about the coming two weeks that I can't sleep. Our new Flip Camera is having problems so we may have to buy another one. In the meantime I will post pics from the digital camera here and on Facebook.

Our new home for the next 2 weeks.

Historic French Quarter

New Orleans Skyline

Local cuisine at Fisherman's Cove. The Swamp Platter (Turtle soup, fried alligator, frog legs, crawfish tails, crawfish soup, and alligtor sausage.) Tony was brave! I just had a bite of the crawfish soup :)
