Ho Hum, I'm In New Orleans

When I said I was taking spring break this year, most people questioned: when is that? And, from what are you taking a break?

To them, I, well, don't know what to say. However, I'm in New Orleans and having a blast trying all the food and spirits I can, without going into a gumbo coma.

Andi, Rebecca and I finally made it to the big easy last evening, prior to a trip to Bourbon Street and to Coop's Place. More on both later.

We arrived and checked into our hostel, India House Backpacker's Hostel, and promptly were checked in by the desk attendant.

Soon after we took the Canal Street Car to Bourbon street and took the desk attendant's suggestion on what gastric pleasures to induce ourselves with.

He suggested Coop's Place and we took the bate. After finally finding the place we sat down, or rather, sat with complete strangers - three girls from Minnesota who had been to New Orleans several times, well, it seemed they had been everywhere, several times.

I ordered the red beans and rice with two piece Cajun fried chicken, mmmmmm. Let's just say the breading on the chicken was the best I've had anywhere, in a long time.

After dinner we headed back to the hostel and had a restful night, for the first time in 2 days.

This morning we awoke early and made our way to the street car and to the French Quarter.

We toured around the historic parts, seeing neat buildings, the river, graveyards and whatever else New Orleans had to offer us.

As we sit it is 84 degrees, sunny and nice.

Tonight we are heading back to the historic district, bar hopping and seeing whatever else there is to see.

More on this later. . . .
