It's been awhile since I posted a true scale Travel Post on this blog . . . which is odd - because Letters of Thought was conceived as in Vilna and started in Venice as a travelogue.
But the wait is over my friends . . . instead of a Picture of the Week, I give you 20 of them -
Part One of Mottel in the Big Easy: Of Social Media and Bourbon Street.

A week after Purim in LA, Chana and I were flown out, so that I could speak at a Jewish youth program in New Orleans on Social Media and Judaism.
Landing Thursday night, we went to the National World War II museum. Why of all places the countries WWII museum is New Orleans - I'm not entirely sure . . . but it's an amazing museum!
Unfortunately my pictures of the museum were somehow lost while transferring from my netbook to my trusty laptop . . . sigh. If they show up, I'll put them in their own post.
A Street Car
Architecture along S. Charles st.
Rocking chairs in front of the ShotGun house we stayed in (good friends of Chana - thank you so much!)
On Sunday we went down to Metairie to speak at the Bagrut program.
I spoke of Judaism and technology - and how we could use it for world good.
And then we hit the old city . . .
Music was everywhere . . . and the photos seemed to take themselves!
Two very interestingly dressed dudes . . . no idea where they're from.
I love this shot

There were bikes everywhere . . .
The Big Easy and Bourbon street

I managed to shoot this one from the hip - he was looking right at me, and I wanted the image to be candid
The old blends with the new
This Guy wanted money for the picture - only had a few cents on me . . . So I suppose it was worth it.
