Way down yonder in New Orleans

A travel blog entry by sheilarickbevis


... we were ready to catch the streetcar and head to the museum. Almost a plan ...the first two streetcars were fine then at the next stop about a hundred people from an army reunion group were waiting to go the same way as us!
