this is what we did in new orleans, lol.

i met up with three other women in atlanta and we flew to new orleans together. when we got there we were all hungry as it was mid afternoon. there was a little restaurant just down the block from the hotel so we went there and got appetizers to eat. we knew we would have a big meal when everyone arrived.

that night we ate at a cafe on bourbon street called creole cuisine. it was really good food and i could not finish all they gave me. then we walked back to the hotel and sat around the pool and visited catching up on each other.

most of us were on the 5th floor. the first girls that checked in were put on the wrong floor but they had already unpacked and didn't want to change. my roommate and i were the first ones down to breakfast every morning. it was continental but they had eggs, bacon and sausage along with the usual sweet rolls and cereal.

friday we took a tour of the city and went down where the most damage from katrina was. it's been cleaned up pretty well and we saw the houses that brad pitt built, boy are they ugly!!! we went by sandra bullock's house, ann rice's house and archie manning's house. there was another celebrity but i can't remember who it was. he took us all over the city and it really was very interesting.

Sounds like a really good time Ellen!! I do remember St. John the Baptist that we went into in Savannah, beautiful! Nice you got to see another church together that was similar. I would have really enjoyed that tour of the city and street artists are always fun too. The foods sound interesting except for that expensive restaurant that made some of you sick. Goodness!!
