Sundays in My City - New Orleans Scenes - October 24, 2010
I thought I would post more pictures of my visit to New Orleans since that's where I was
last Sunday. In between my 45 year nursing school reunion functions, my friend and I
drove around the city. Much has changed, of course, since our student nurse days but
much has not. Roads are terrible - part of New Orleans is at - or below - sea level and
the constant flooding when it rains, contributes to the constant disrepair of roads. There
is still much that hasn't been repaired since Katrina and it is so sad to see houses still
boarded up. The Quarter is much the same, though, and the Cafe du Monde was packed
at all hours of the day and night with folks wanting their beignet and coffee fix!
