We headed straight to the French Quarter where the infamous Bourbon Street was flourishing in all of its dirty, dirty glory. One positive was that couples were more than welcome in all the strip joints...
Built in 1732, Lafitte’s Blacksmith shop is reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar ...
... the jazz fest. I could hear the music from the house. I walked up past the jazz fest, looking at the old houses along the way. Most had the said servants quarters in the backyard. I was told by will to checkout the bayou that was a few kilometres up the road. Not really sure what he meant by bayou, so I had a look. Really, it was a creek or canal. People were kayaking and picnicking along it's shoreline. Some botanical gardens were across the street so I walked them and into the large ...

10. Insider's tour and joyful company with our friends, Nathan, Brittany, and Twain.
The following day we took a swamp boat tour into the bayous. The captain was very funny and as we navigated the narrow waterways alligators swam out to the boat as if to greet an old friend. We saw many gators and enjoyed the rich lore of swamp culture. Our ...
... round the ghetto. There were groups of people on the street, burnt out houses and cars and when the taxi driver said 'yeah, you'll need to be careful round here' I did begin to question whether we would survive the night. But luckily he was an idiot. We were actually staying further down that road the other end, which was much nicer (maybe more St Ann's then Compton). When we got inside it was a bit...odd. Let's just say the pictures ...
... A bayou just like one would expect to see. Black water, loads of insects, canoes and houses built on the banks of the bayou. It all looks very peaceful, but also very scary! Lisa and I spent some time just looking and appreciating the place, Lisa taking photos, before the rains came, once again.
In Baton Rouge we found a cheap motel and went to bed.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHouse of the Rising Sun Bed and Breakfast New Orleans
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.
