We met up with Kelly and Gabe later on and did a Cemetery/Voodoo tour around the French Quarter with Historic New Orleans. We visited St Louis Cemetery No 1, Armstrong Park, and saw a lot of buildings around the French Quarter. The cemeteries in New Orleans are above ground since the city is basically on swampland
Our next stop was the Historic Voodoo Museum. That place was a bit spooky but I felt like I had to learn a little bit about voodoo and its history. No, I did not make any offerings or make any wishes upon people. Although there are a couple of people I can think of who need to have bad things wished upon them.
Since we didn't have lunch that afternoon, we had an afternoon snack at Acme Oyster House. A dozen oysters on a half shell were only $6.99. And they were yummy! Gabe had to catch his flight back to LA after that, so we said good bye and headed back to our hotel to rest and nap.
That night we went to dinner at Deanie's Seafood. The three of us shared two pounds of crawfish and onion rings. The crawfish was really good. All spicy and messy. That night we hit up Bourbon Street one last time and bought some cheesy souvenirs. Also, I went to Cafe du Monde for the third night in a row with Cindy.
