NOLA-Part 4

One of the old oak trees in City park, hung with Spanish Moss. SOO cool!
These trees look like they just got so tired, they had to lay down their branches on the ground!
New Orleans cemetary in the Garden District
One of many old mansions in the Garden District.
24 hour beignets? OKAY!!
Nate and I stopped at the Faulkner House, where Faulkner lived while
he was writing in New Orleans back in the early 1900s. Now, it is a super-cool
book store. We each bought a book... he got Louis Armstrong's autobiography and
I got a book of Faulkner's essays from New Orleans. They were both fantastic! When
we were finished reading, we swapped books!
Bourbon Street. Crazy. Loud. Horribly stinky. Filled with bars and vodoo shops and jazz.
And teeming with life! Quite an experience!
