New Orleans - Day Eight - Easter

One of many street musicians. She was terrific!

Not surprisingly there were many people elegantly attired with many fabulous hats today.

Time for café au lait and beignets at Café du Monde


Clearly a rough day with lots of hard work. More seriously today was a real glimpse of the wonderful New Orleans culture. It was also a striking sign of the lousy economy because the crowds were thin. Nice for us, not good for the local economy which depends so heavily on tourism.

tomorrow we're back to work!

This is an amazing trip. Every person is experiencing many faces of NOLA. As Neil states "we are living real." Plans to return in August, December, and April are being made. Talk of an independent study are happening.
Today were are going for chicken at Willie Mae's Scotch House. Check out NPR.
See you April 16 at 5:47 pm. If you are not there, I keep your child.
Thank-you for sharing your child with me. I am honored to work side-by-side with her/him.
Fondly,
Gail
