A Day On The Town…Two Months Ago

I have not been feeling good at all for the past few weeks. However, after spending some quality time with the doctor, things are starting to get better slowly. So that also accounts for why I haven’t been posting. When I wasn’t sleeping, I was trying to take care of some more basic necessities…like play Civilization on the Xbox 360.

Anyway, for one of the last days I spent in Louisiana, Nick and I went to New Orleans and walked around, taking pictures and seeing stuff. Check it out.

First, we went to St. Louis Cathedral. It was very lovely inside, although, since I have only spent time in various LDS buildings, it was kind of strange. Luckily, Nick was familiar with it so he could explain it to me.

 

One thing that I really liked about the cathedral were the murals. The photos don’t really do them justice. It’s just one of those things you have to see in person.

Right next door to the cathedral is the Cabildo. Originally, it was a government building but now it is the Louisiana State History Museum. There were tons of great exhibits there ranging from Native American life through the post civil war era.

Nick and I must have walked between the place where we parked and the Riverwalk three times, visiting different stores along the way. It reminded me of the day we were hanging out in Downtown Seattle and walked and monorailed between Seattle Center and Pike Place a billion times.

 

It was a great wrap up for our trip and Nick was even able to walk around by this point. I should also mention that there was this odd homeless or crazy couple (…well it was a man and a woman) that were talking to us while we were walking around. The woman apparently had some broken ribs and was not feeling good. In fact, “All of the weed in the world” wasn’t enough to help her get through how annoying the pain made everyone else seem. She was cranky, but all she wanted was to get to the liquor store. I couldn’t understand a word that the guy was saying…but he seemed to be in general agreement that he could use a drink as well.

I hope you are feeling better.
I love the pictures from New Orleans. The cathedral is beautiful. You know how I love murals. And old buildings. What fun.
