We've had a busy Friday as we got into New Orleans around 2pm yesterday. Once we got checked into our hotel, we were free to explore the city the rest of the evening! We made our way to the French Quarter and got to experience Bourbon Street, full of jazz music coming from the local pubs and street performers. Some went over to Royal Street to go into all the local shops. Many people were determined to get certain types of food native to New Orleans, such as gumbo, jumbalaya, and beignets from Cafe Du Monde.
It was great to have an evening to relax, explore, and get to hang out with our choir members without the stress of an upcoming concert that night. Today, we head to Houston, Texas!
