Monday 26th July 2010

A carriage ride round the French quarter started our day..Tommy & maybeline his trusty steed gave us an informative tour of historic New Orleans including the oldest pub in the USA a shack used by Jean Lafitte to conduct his illicit business when not in the war mongering trade.

Tommy recommended the Po Boy cafe ( A po boy is a "poor boy " sandwich) Mr Tommy thought we might like this delicacy.. hmmm Ian did not like his Aligator sausage, which will live on now as POO BOY, I did not like my roast beef & Min did not like her fried chicken, Less said about that the better.. We resumed our tour on foot & visited Bourbon Street by day Even in daylight a variety of scantily clad young women ply their trade much to ians delight & mins disgust.

We stopped by the flea Market, No one bought any fleas, Then Min & I took a tour of the pool & chatted to some other guests, ( Who thought we had Australian accents..Min & I masqueraded as Madge & Kylie for the afternoon !)

Next stop a $1.25 Street car ride, An hours trip out to the garden district to see the posh homes..Then back to Bourbon Street to The "Desire Oyster bar" for a Sea food Extravaganza..We bought Souvenirs & Cocktails " to go " on Bourbon Street & Got Min Safely to her bed before she could have herself corrupted by the Sin In the Big Easy!

Sleep well dear Reader..I Might just have cast a Voodoo spell on yooo!
