New Orleans - Day Three - vampire tour

Last night after dinner we drove to the French Quarter to go on a vampire tour. It was a guided walking tour around the quarter focusing on all the vampire stories, crazy mass murderer history and the like. Our guide had written a book on the subject and was keen on making things as scary as possible with limited success given a crew of teens prone to laughing at the wrong moment. It was a lovely evening to walk around the quarter looking at beautiful architecture. After the tour we went to Cafe du Monde and enjoyed beignets and café au lait - life is rough!
