Down to New Orleans

Today for Thanksgiving, Jennifer and I drove down to New Orleans. It is Jennifer's 1st time and my 2nd.  It is a little over a 5 hour drive.  We ate a big breakfast before we left with yogurt, bagel, oatmeal and chocolate chip banana muffins (Jennifer made them last week).  We stopped and had lunch at Subway in Louisiana.  It was past 5p when we got to New Orleans.  Our hotel, the Empress Hotel, is 2 blocks from the French Quarter.  That's cool.  Our hotel is cheap, $60 a night where other hotels in the area are at least $120 a night.  It is not a Motel 6 but we knew what we were getting in to.  We got here and it was an experience, like a hotel in Europe.  A very small room and bathroom with no closet.  Why do I need more?  We came to see the French Quarter not to live in the hotel.

We walked around the Quarter a bit and ate at the Magnolia Cafe.  I had a muffuletta and Jennifer had a crawfish etouffee. My sandwich was very good and came with seasoned fries. Then back to the hotel, got my car and drove offer the Mississippi on a large bridge. Then back over with a view of New Orleans and back to the hotel.

I am back in New Orleans.
