breakfast at 2:30 PM: meatless cheeseburgers and baked potatoes. linda showed us around the lower ninth ward. melissa gutted houses after the storm. 6 years later, it’s come so far, but there’s still so much wreckage. it was great to see; overwhelming. then we walked around bourbon street. went to pat o’brien’s; listened to the pianos. it didn’t even compare to my last trip to bourbon street (but the rest of the trip made up for that).
