New Orleans

Recently made my first trip back to New Orleans since before Katrina hit in 2005. Spent part of one afternoon driving through the lower 9th ward, spent most of the time in the quarter, stopped at the Saint Roch’s cemetery where people leave molds of body parts that were healed. Chatted with Sanford Ingram, a soft spoken gentleman who has yet been able to move back into his home, a home that had been given to him by this grandmother when he was six years-old. Four days, 2 beignets, Arnaud’s, Antoine’s, the Pearl, La Peniche, and Felix’s…and I got to come home.
