Day Two

The Saints played a big game on Saturday night, so New Orleans is alive and well after Hurricane Isaac's visit last week. On the way into town, we saw a great deal of damage, but as usual, the French Quarter made it through all right.

We arrived at the Andrew Jackson Hotel early and our room was not ready yet. I had reserved a quiet queen room on the court yard. After wandering the city for a while, we stopped in to see if the room was ready. The gentleman at the desk informed us that we had been upgraded and apologized for the inconvenience. He told us that we'd be staying in the king suite located at the front of the hotel over looking Royal Street. We went up the long narrow staircase, turned the corner down the extremely narrow hall, to find our room. As we opened the door, we realized, we'd just scored the best room in the hotel!
The coveted room with the balcony right on the street.

I'll post pictures when I have more time and a better internet connection. Until then, I'm off to enjoy all that Bourbon Street and the French Quarter have to offer.

It really helps that all the tour guides are stopping out front telling stories of the ghost that haunts our room.

Later I will tell the story of what was said to have happened in our room in 1983.
For another part of our trip, we purchased a full spectrum camera. We practiced using it in this room. I haven't had h chance to review the footage yet though.
