New Orleans photos

I've finally posted photos from New Orleans. You'll find 136 photos from our one-week stop mid-June. Take a look to see alligators, the French Quarter, a Mardis Gras museum, frogs, and a 30-second movie clip of a real New Orleans jazz band performing on a riverboat.

We're in Oklahoma City for a three-night respite from driving. Mapquest says we've already reached the halfway point from San Diego to Turin, NY so we thought we'd take a rest! Turin is our destination for Labor Day weekend, and we're making pretty good time.

Hi Alysa and Mitch,

In the late 50s, my parents bought their first "hi-fi", a 33 rpm record player with mono sound. The first album I bought was by The Dukes of Dixieland (of New Orleans). So, it is remarkable that some 45 years later that you attend a concert by a band in New Orleans of the same name.

The photos and the movie clip are terrific.
