New Orleans

it's heaven i tell you, it's pure heaven. New Orleans is a city with ghosts; not just their ghosts of lore, but a city with the very obvious feel of history that real cities have. Indeed, much of the French Quarter reminds me of home and one cannot escape the city's French heritage.

We've managed to take a boatload of photographs including a bunch of really creepy ones from the cemetery (including the reputed tomb of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau). We have not yet had a meal that was less than stellar. If you're gonna come off of five days in Jamaica this is not a bad way to do it.

Of course, the city of New Orleans encourages drinking like none other, so ther's no really coming off anything. Still, it is a lovely vacation (not like i have another vacation to compare it to - but i'm having a good time).

there'll be swamp tours later today - after i go to sleep and get up and get some breakfast and a beer...
