. . . New Orleans. We are staying in a fantastic house. There’s amazing architecture all around. We had grits with bacon and egg for breakfast and gumbo and jambalaya for dinner. We drank ice cold strawberry lemonade and cucumber lemonade in between. There are lots of interesting characters around and paddle steamers on the Mississippi. It’s hot and sunny. We finished the day listening to blues in a bar in the French Quarter. Only downside is the risk of being held up at gunpoint. Don’t forget you can follow us by clicking on ‘follow’ above.
