Today was an early start. 5.30am wakeup for a nice wet-wipe shower, a quick pack and a tent party, before heading out of the campsite at 6.30am.

We asked what was going on and she told us it was a wake for the poor guy who lived a couple of doors down! Another tradition in New Orleans, they have parties to honour the dead and people sing and dance and eat lots of barbecued food! We stayed and chatted for an hour but still feeling tired, said our goodbyes and went to bed! The following day we took ...
