We had planned to have continental breakfast at the hotel around 8:30, but we were running a little late. Breakfast ended at 9:00, but the lady at the hotel brought some food out for us even though it was 8:55. We thought 9:00 was early for breakfast to end, but at least we got something.
We headed to the French Quarter for a walking tour at 10:00. New Orleans wasn't what either of us expected. We first drove through a really run-down area. ...

It is probably fitting for the new Texas that they say is turning brown and blue. Some characters on the train today.
