We left Alabama early today and headed west towards Mississippi. While passing Mississippi we took a detour on some local roads and stopped at a beach on the Coast to play in the water, it was quite nice. We then continued on towards Louisiana and spent most of the day in New Orleans. It's a really cool city, very artsy, hip, and colorful. The architecture there is really quaint and beautiful, lots of French bistro's, art studios, antique shops, chotchky shops, etc. We went to Café Du Monde and had their famous beignet which was good but nothing to write home about (Remember that Star Trek episode where Data learns how to use that term? Lol. I'm a nerd.) the coffee on the other hand was to die for but I did promise you guys not to make this blog about coffee so I won't elaborate.

After New Orleans we continued on to Sketchville, Louisiana where we are spending the night. It's not actually called Sketchville, but it's been a long day and I'm having my evening with an extra dose of sassiness. Louisiana overall is a more happening place than Alabama, and decibels more sketchy. Tomorrow we continue on to Texas, we'll see where that falls on the sketchy meter.

Miriam's computer is being its usual perky self and is refusing to perform the functions it has been created to do, so all the pretty pictures we took of the ocean melting into the horizon, the magnificent New Orleans architecture, the usual dorky poses of us, won't be up tonight. Hopefully we'll have them up by tomorrow when Miriam's computer decides to take its Viagra and performs properly.

Here's a pretty google image I found of New Orleans
