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.

New Orleans is lush and full of character, especially after the effects of the disastrous hurricane almost ten years before, there were houses still standing abandoned. Lionel, was telling us about the devastating effects of the community, people just never came back and now the challenge is to rebuild that community. Brass bands played everywhere and bourbon street was just as horrific in the day, pushing a pram, everyone ...
... the water, no noise except for the occasional chirping of a cricket. And then two beady eyes and two nostrils broke the surface of the water. The ripples began to radiate out from both sides as the alligator swished its tail from side to side, moving threateningly through the water. We were informed that this was a small 'gator. To determine the size, you measure the nose in inches from eyes to end. Whatever this measurement is will be the length of the 'gator in feet. This, ...
... water and hit the road. Because we were running a few minutes late and only knew the starting and ending point of the parade but not the route, we went straight to Jackson Square and then headed toward Bourbon St and back in the direction of the beginning. We found a good place to stand by the Court of 2 Sisters and Polly got a world famous bloody mary from a daiquari shop; it was truly amazing, nicely spiced and had a few pickled green beans for additional flavor. I really need ...
... listened to some great jazz (buskers are of incredible standard here), laughed at the drunks on Bourbon Street (you could have some serious fun in New Orleans this is a city built for partying) and took lots of photos. When we're multi billionaires we will have a house here I think.
Third time lucky deep south: we attempted food out again. The Bourbon House, on famous Bourbon Street, had great reviews. And delivered. New Orleans is famous for various good ...
... its rows and rows of monumental above ground vaults. I was surprised to see that people were still being laid to rest there. Meanwhile Chris was resting on a nearby bench...he was not feeling the best and the 2.5 miles we had walked already was not improving the situation.
Walking back we thought we would be able to get near the water quickly but we were sandwiched between warehouses and cement walls in front of the train tracks for ...
