New Orleans :: The French Quarter

19 Feb

On the only full day of sight-seeing in New Orleans, we first wandered Saint Louis Cemetery Number One, then took a turn through the French Quarter, loosely following a walking tour route. It was a fairly sedate and chilly Monday, but we definitely enjoyed  just checking everything out, stopping for lunch, beer, the market and for a little souvenir searching as well.

The below shot was taken the following day after a breakfast of cafe au lait and beignets at the famous Café du Monde. Then it was off to work. Sigh…

And finally, the fog lifted a little as you can see from the below pics taken yet the next day from the 41st floor of our hotel. We attended a reception on that very floor the night before and you couldn’t see an inch out the window for the fog.
