... In a nutshell, because the internet charges on the ship are outrageous and definitely cramp my style;
1. On Monday, we toured the former Canal Zone in Panama City, which the Americans abandoned in 1998 (seedy colonial-style architecture in some areas, much newer military-based style in others). Also, we went to the Miraflores Locks Visitors Center and watched ships go through the first set of locks on ...
... past and present. As we were walking, we saw two very loud and lively "Second Lines". A Second Line is a parade of jazz musicians followed by a long line (the second line) of people dancing and clapping. These second lines are permitted in New Orleans for funerals, weddings and other celebrations. You just need a permit through the city.

After class we walked back to the French Quarter with one of the ladies who had taken the class with us who was a journalist and was also the editor for the Qantas inflight magazine. This trip has really broadened our horizons as just listening to her tell of travelling to places such as New Orleans to document the devastation left by Hurricane Katrina was fascinating.
After a short drive from Baton Rouge, we've now arrived in New Orleans. Headed out to the famous Bourbon Street tonight - wow, crazy! People everywhere, all kinds of bars, live music, and places to eat. Unlike anything we've seen before.
Had a dinner of cajun chicken, jambalaya and voodoo juice before walking back to our hotel. Off to bed now, big day exploring this city tomorrow!
Bye for now
