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.

Tomorrow we arrive in Cozumel and are going to see some of the cultural exhibits and explore on our ...

We headed back to the hotel via a Frozen Yoghurt place which was totally amazing. i had a mix of watermelon and mango, with pieces of kit kat, peanut butter chocolates, marshmallows and purple sugar glitter. It definitely hit the spot.
When we got back to the hotel, it ...

... double quick time. Waiters keep up a repartee with customers the whole time. A lot of fun and the food was good too. A couple at our bench are heading to Oz in October - he has a 3 year stint in Canberra with a communications company.
After breakie decide to walk to French Markets nearby - not much in the way of produce - mainly touristy junk but some very interesting food stalls. Pity we had just had a big breakfast.
Walk past tour office - decide to check things out. Book ...
