After the work day is done we make a point of showing our volunteers around the city. This way they can get a better feel of what the people, food and culture is all about.
Here are some photos from the month of May.
Susan and Randi get the real New Orleans tour in the back of Jamie’s truck.
We took an extra long lunch one day and
had a picnic beside the Mississippi River.
It’s not a picnic without some spicy crawfish.
We saw this cool vintage VW Bus parked in the French Quarter.
It was covered with beads and other decorative items.
Randi enjoys a beignet (or two) from Cafe Du Monde.
Darren took our volunteers out for lunch at Crabby J’s.
A sign that clearly states how most returning residents feel.
Since the storm the saying below has become very common.
It was painted onto one of the levies. It translates to
“New Orleans gave me patience and passion”.
These signs are now being posted on many homes indicating
that the city will be tearing them down shortly.
