First day in NOLA

So far our first day here has been amazing. We got here at 5:30ish (am) and the whole group hasn’t slept for atleast the last 24 hours or so. We started out our day by visiting Jean Lafitte National Historic Park & Preserve were we all got to see our first real alligators really up close and personal. We followed that up with lunch at Parkway beakery where we had some poor boy subs and listened to Harry Shearer talk about the army corps of engineers and the disastrous levee incident that lead to the massive flooding event during Hurricane Katrina. However, perhabs the best part of the day was walking around the French Quarter and really immersing ourselves in the NOLA culture. The only negative is that the humidity here sucks and you can tell by simply looking at my curly hair lol.
