Cindy and I woke up super early AGAIN to return the rental car. We drove around looking for a gas station and wound up very quickly in the ghetto. After picking up Kelly from the hotel, we went to breakfast at Orleans Café next to our hotel. Kelly went back to the hotel for a nap, and Cindy and I did our own little walk of the French Quarter. It was funny because we had already been in New Orleans since Friday but this was our first time seeing the city in daylight. We saw Jackson Square, the Pontalba Buildings, and some other historic buildings around the French Quarter.

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. Also, we had to do an organized tour because the cemetery is literally next to the projects and it can be dangerous if you're not in a big group. By the end of the tour, my feet were killing me.

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.

That's known that money can make people autonomous. But what to do
when someone doesn't have money? The one way is to receive the loan or just college loan.

Some specialists claim that business loans aid people to live the
way they want, because they can feel free to buy necessary goods.
Furthermore, a lot of banks offer financial loan for different persons.

All people deserve good life time and loans or short term loan would make it better. Just because
freedom is grounded on money.
