This place is so-so. Overall looks old. The room smells a bit funny and location is in a rougher part of the city. It''s OK if you're on a tight budget. In hindsight, New Orleans is probably one of those cities where it is worth going over your typical budget to stay in the French Quarter.

The described not only the military aspects of the war but talked about the home front, rationing, recycling and bond drives and the rapid change of our economy to a wartime one producing ...
... Americans. It is a melting pot of free peoples, natives, slaves, descendants of slaves, moneyed peoples, poor people and people of many different cultures and customs. There is creole (blend of birth origin) and Cajun (shortened from Acadian who were French exiled from Nova Scotia), Native American, Spanish and French influences here in all the cooking, music and customs and it is a city like no other in the world. It is a fascinating history and very different to the stories ...
... the left and right side, in Bristol this line was painted in red, white and blue on all the roads! Just before we got into Providence Melanie and I had just enough time to drive around the student area of Brown University, it was kind of like a city university with departments and student housing scattered everywhere. We found the main gate which was gorgeous and one of the oldest parts of Brown. Melanie dropped me off at the Providence station to catch my night ...
