We stayed 2 nights on Algiers Point at the House of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Host Kevin was very helpful in providing information on what to do our first night on 'The Point' and on ideas for our full day 'over the river. Our GPS brought us right to the front door, and that's where the car stayed until we departed. The free (for walk-on) ferry crossed the Mississippi every 1/2 hour, and drops you right at the foot of Canal Street next to the French Quarter.
Back at the house we had all we needed, with high speed internet, excellent shower, and a nice fresh breakfast. Thanks again to Kevin and Wendy.

But I can't really remember that, after the huge alcohol slush puppy I have a bit of a ...
... fun and is noisy. There is heaps of shops that sell voodoo dolls and mardi gras stuff. They also sell hot sauce.
Like Vegas, you are allowed to drink while you are walking along the street, so I got a frozen margarita and just wandered.
Barry got drunk.
Its an early start tomorrow so early to bed.
... and New Orleans still shows the scars of the damage.
It wasn't the hurricane that actually caused such devastation, even though it was packing winds of 280Kph. The collapsing of the levee system protecting the city from the Mississippi River was catastrophic. Some parts of the city were under 6m of water at its peak, resulting in the loss of almost 2000 lives (apparently in excess of 50,000 animals also perished).

... cocktails, taking in the moment and people watching. Steph tried a gin fizz here, made with real egg whites..odd but soo tasty. The bar filled with people, people with a lot of money, and watching the dynamics of these people made it even more fun.
From here we stopped in at Tanya and Doris again and just sat on the curb with a couple beers for an hour and a half and just enjoyed.
We realized we had been there for so ...
