Day 1 in New Orleans

Well, we made it. In search of graduate students, I am spending a couple of days at some graduate school recruitment fairs. We will be visiting SUNO (State University of New Orleans) tomorrow and will then participate in another fair with Xavier University on Friday. We are looking for an exciting time.

Until then, we decided to explore the wonders of New Orleans. We started a Mulate's. I had fried alligator and some yummy gumbo. The cajun music band was fun and there were lots of dancers. I would have tried, but they all looked so competent that I didn't think that I could fake it.

We followed this wonderful dinner with walking over to Cafe du Monde for some binets and coffee. What an evening.

The best part was sharing it with Doug, Celeste and Cliff.

    Thank you for visiting and spreading the word that New Orleans is ready for visitors. You will see the other side of the coin when you visit SUNO. Have your cab ride around the neighborhoods of Ponchatrain Park, Gentilly Woods, and the Lakefront and wonder what it means to be an American.

  2. Z., Those binets look mighty tempting --have a muffaletto sandwich for me while you're there too. :-) Lois
