New Orleans- Environment [Days 1 & 2]
Saturday (March 10, 2012) & Sunday (March 11, 2012)
Saturday, March 10, was departure day, and we had a long road ahead of us! It took our group of 10 people nine long hours to make the drive from Florida to New Orleans, but we occupied ourselves with car games, one of which included the infamous “Wombat Game.” We arrived that afternoon, and once dropping off our belongings at Peace Lutheran Curch, our home for the next week, we discovered a delicious Mexican restaurant to host our dinner. Sunday was action-packed, full of wandering through the various realms of the French Quarter and somersaulting in Jackson Square. We were able to see many popular attractions. Our main highlights included eating at Cafe Du Monde, visiting the St. Louis Catherdal, running into unique street performers, and walking down the legendary Bourbon Street. The French Quarter had neverending sights to admire, and after about 12 hours, our group finally called it a day. Foot massages and rest were in high demand, with our true adventures beginning the next morning.
