      Really felt like I was just living in Joe and Flo's home.
      It is about 15 minutes from Bourbon Street and the rest of the action in a quiet part of town. Close to a couple of really great places to eat (Lil Dizzy's and Cajun Seafoods). Across the highway at night is a little sketchy but no real issues. The rooms are generously sized and comfortably air conditioned. Small common areas and quite a small population of stayers meant the place was nice and quiet. Though they do have 24 hour access and always someone a phonecall away for the night owls. Staff were super friendly and helpful in organising tours and suggesting places to hang out.
      Would definitely recommend, gives you a little escape from the hoopla of Bourbon without being isolated.

      ... Our afternoon was filled with a tour of New Orleans. We visited the different areas of the city affected by Katrina. The signs of the flood are still there. Many old houses are empty and ready to be bulldozed but can't without the owners permission. The problem is that many owners can't be found or refuse to have their place torn down. The good news is that the locals feel that the breach of the ...

The start of the “civil rights” movement........was not begun on a bus with Rosa Parks, but rather with a black fellow named Homer Adolph Plessey who was arrested for riding on a Whites only train....back in 1892. We rode by the oldest above ground cemetery in New Orleans and learned about their long standing environmental and respectful way of doing the ashes to ashes...dust to dust part of people’s ...

      ... myself to a large orange juice which was very refreshing. I had fried eggs and fried ham, which came in massive quantities, so I determined not to have any lunch to make up for it. Not my ideal choice of breakfast, quantity over quality. But Ian was happy.
      We walked on down to the museum, which was $22 to get in, but it was very well set out. A big focus on personal recollections from soldiers and factory workers which gave ...

They even put my name on a new bottle of Chivas Regal… We must have thrown 200 +lbs each of beads of all sizes & colors to all the crazies below. Many interesting sights…all kinds, some would have been better with their shirt on. It was a fun night! Margot kept me out past midnight…and didn't have to tell me we had fun! Dragging a bit today. All and all ...

      ... grenades had made a mess of us, that's for sure. We fell back to sleep until about 11am then dragged ourselves out of bed and walked down to McDonald for a hangover burger. We didn't want to waste the day in bed so we did more adventuring around the city and French Quarter. We were going to do a cooking school where you watch how they make the famous Cajun food like Gumbo and Jambalaya but we didn't realize you eat a 3 course meal while there and we'd just eaten ...
