|On the way to New Orleans for P-Day on July 1st.|
|The famous Superdome! (I might be a Saints fan now, just because I've never had an NFL team. And I know Jimmy Graham and Drew Brees are sick!)|
|In the city.|
|Canal Street is famous, right? I don't really know...but it's right downtown.|
Mardi Gras beads litter the whole city!
The people in NOLA love Cafe Du Monde! I was glad to see it because it's a French name ("Cafe/Coffee of the World") and they serve French food (sort of)! I got a "meal" there...the only meal they serve, along with coffee. Three beignets for about $3. "Beignet" is French for doughnuts. They were COVERED in powdered sugar!
This "Great and Abominable Church" guards the French Quarter--one of the most wicked places on Earth! Kind of a weird thing to want to associate your religion with if you ask me...
|The St. Louis Cathedral that overlooks Jackson Square|
|Elder Knowlton and I! I love him!|
(Elder Knowlton is 6'4")
We got to go to the Pepper Palace while in New Orleans. I tried the world's hottest natural hot sauce! You have to be 18 to try it, and you have to sign a waiver first. Yikes!!
|Elder Dayton looks a little nervous, signing the waiver!!|
|It was SO hot! I just dipped a little corner of chip in it, and my mouth burned for over an hour!!|
|I'm so glad I did it though! :) It was worth it! I have a pretty funny video of it, but I can't send it via email, so I guess I'll just have to show you when I get home in two years.|
|After a long day of partying, aka proselyting. Mardi gras beads and all.|
