On every corner is a musician or even bands. Lucky we don’t live in New Orleans otherwise we would be broke because Jolanda would give away her last dollar.  Interesting… on every corner was also somebody hanging and drinking a beer as early as 12noon…..

Jolanda’s wish was to experience the true Mississippi feeling. We took a little lunch cruise with a real steamboat

After that we went to the French market. Lucky the shops closed early…

They had really cool art work, souvenirs and hot sauces like never seen before.
