A very small hotel with a lot of charm, right in the heart of the French Quarter. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It's not your typical chain hotels - there are no amenities, no coffee or tea, but they did give us coupons for free coffee. I would definitely stay there again!

We toured the Lafayette Cemetery first. She noted the tombs had relatively recent dates of death on them, even though it is a historic cemetery. I later heard and subsequently read that after two years of death and burial, ...

They then took u sot another favourite restaurant - Zeas
This time they ordered for us:
Mashed sweet potato
and a dessert
Amazing food as well! Ate so much today I feel like i could explode!
Was so amazing to have locals take us out to eat their favourite food
... people already struggle and who will probably never recover.
After leaving, we walk back through Louis Armstrong Park to Congo Square (we learned about this yesterday from Milton), it is where the African slaves would gather on Sundays which was their only day off and reconnect through music with one another and with their culture. It was also a place of trade where the slaves could trade the crops they had grown with the Native Americans for money ...
