Re: Vacation Rtn


I've been to Mardi Gras 3 times.  What people might forget is that it is
celebrated in more than just the French Quarter, though that's where you'd
be to be in the thick of it.  I also lived in NOLA for one summer as a child
and have visited a couple of times for conventions.  Wonderful city, though
it definitely has it's problems.  I've mentioned before how I hate to
travel, but NOLA is a destination I can appreciate.
