... afford a little bread and simple fillings. The Crescent city, NOLA has been a joy to visit and fortunately Tom Petty's Louisiana rain didn't soak our shoes!We have been told the Amtrak train can be slow but after the Trans-Sib that will be nothing.

Natchez Steamboat

... and found a lovely building that served us crepes and dessert. They were closing in 10 minutes but still served us with a smile. The waiter told us about their ballroom upstairs that was around in the 1700's, so we had a squizz and looked at another historic room.

The gang had a really early flight so we all went to be bed. We said goodbye to Mark & Rachel and we hope to see them again in this lifetime.

The House of the Rising Fun

... life's problems. In seriousness, the poverty is inescapable. It was quite harrowing walking down the street, seeing street corners and battered buildings being run like the ghettos in the Wire.
