Tuesday, December 4, 2018:  Mark and Paula headed to the historic old New Orleans.
A statue of Joan of Arc was there.
Three U.S. military veterans entertained visitors with New Orleans jazz.   Nicely done.
Plenty to see on the streets of New Orleans.
When hungry, many stop for a Muffuletta.  It is an Italian sub sandwich with an olive and oil dressing.
For dessert, many go for a Beignet, a hot pastry with powdered sugar.  A real crowd pleaser.
Music aplenty on every street in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

Then a steam pipe organ was heard at the waterfront.  A steamboat captain was inviting people aboard.
The Natchez headed up the Mississippi River.
There was at least one interesting passenger aboard.  A good place for photographers too.
There was plenty to see on the river.
A band was playing rag time jazz inside.

Once ashore, there was more to see including this man who posed for tips.  Very well done.
No stopping the music in this city.

Quote of the day:     Another great day in New Orleans.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
