It's ironic. Letter's of Thought began as a travelogue - every trip I went on was blogged within in days, if not hours, from my return . . . yet with all the blessings in my life, thank G-d, I just don't have the time to do things like I used to put up my travels right away.
While in New Orleans before Purim, we decided to take a ride down the Mississippi.

I'm going to keep the commentary brief - so that you can enjoy our trip on the USS Natchez much the way we did . . . Silently taking in the sites (with an Abita Beer in hand!)
It was interesting to note that while discussing the history of New Orleans, the Southern belle narating on the loud speaker, actually referred to the War Between the States!
I loved framing this shot!
New Orleans and the French Quarter
Some of the many Japanese tourists. (This one is for you Nemo-San)
One of the tourists from Japan had Leica D-Lux like me. It took me a moment to explain to him that we were 'Camera Brothers.'
Another shot I enjoyed taking - You are Beautiful
Folks, out sugar is processed here!
All in all the trip was rather dull - I wouldn't recommend it on a tight schedule - but if you have a few hours to kill . . .
