New Orleans

So I left early this morning to travel down to the Big Easy. I am headed to New Orleans for a work trade show. I have been to New Orleans once before, and love the city. The last time I was in New Orleans, I was given a first hand tour of the lower 9th ward by a police officer. The devastation was horrible, but it was amazing to hear stories from someone who stayed to help protect the city while everyone else had to evacuate. Enough can't be said or written about to give credit to what people did in the time of tragedy.

I am excited to get to go back, and see how far things have come. We are staying downtown, so I hope to get some time to walk around.
