Saturday March 21, 2009 1300 days since Katrina.

I started my day taking the drive down to New Orleans from St. Louis, MO, taking one stop at Memphis for some Bar-B-Q. Rolled into New Orleans around 6:45 PM, the area was popping full of people.

Thank god for GPS needless to say. Never been to New Orleans, so I felt comfortable getting lost where ever I could go. The first stop to New Orleans was Le Citio Bistro. It was a nice place to look at but out of my price range to eat, so I drove on.

Second stop was Garden District Pub, a nice pub with very friendly patrons and bartender. They only served alcohol so had dinner at Café Roma a block away. I had my first Muffelatta sandwich..awesome! Found a parking lot in the city to sleep in.

Pictures for this day had been lost to computer crashing while on this trip.

It is 8 AM and I am off on the drive to New Orleans. I will try to just drive straight though and get down there before 10 PM for sure.
