After eating we went to Frenchmen Street which we both thought was much better than Bourbon Street. We ambled around a cool artists market, had our first sazarac cocktails and intended to check out some jazz at one of the local venues. As ...
... where the Creoles told variations of the tales in their native Louisiana Creole French language.
Talk about swamp people! I swear our tour guide Captain Tom could of been off the show. He was entertaining for sure.

There were 3 Racoons playing on the bank and a young gator in the swamp, Tom started throwing marshmallows to the racoons trying to get ...
