I'm moving on to New Orleans to cheer the Saints back home. The party hasn't stopped in the French Quarter since the beginning of the week-end; it's sure to continue until Mardi Gras day. I'm planning to "be there in that number when the Saints go marching in" -- back into New Orleans.
I'm hoping to rent an apartment for the duration of the week, so my family can celebrate the Crescent City rebirth in comfort and style. For those who have never experienced New Orleans in parade mode, a bathroom is worth its weight in gold, and a kitchen is simply a dream come true. if you're lucky enough to have a flush toilet on the parade route, you're lucky enough.
