Took the dogs out for a New Orleans-style breakfast this morning.
After a while, we wandered down Frenchmen Street and into the Quarter proper, but it was just so hot that I felt bad having them out.
Then I saw this car, and didn't feel so bad. Someone actually drives this boat around.
Grabbed a muffuletta for lunch from Central Grocery. Yum!
Sachmo SummerFest was going on. Had to sit outside and listen because there was a sign saying that I could not bring guns, marijuana or dogs in. So I hosed them off at the horse trough and grabbed a seat in the shade to eat my delicious round sammich.
Wet Belle...but cooler Belle.
Then it was back home to the air conditioning.
On the way back, I saw this creature and fell madly in love...
Sadly I didn't get her name, number or tag#, but it reminded me again that I love this dysfunctional third-world city. If nothing else, it's seldom boring here.
