We'll post more after dinner, but we have safely made it to New Orleans!
Due to the snow storm (yes, snow) in the south we had some bumpy travels in and out of Atlanta. When we finally landed in New Orleans it was 35 degrees! After breakfast we drove through the 9th ward and checked in to the hotel. We are staying at the Ambassador Hotel, which is very "New Orleans" with high ceilings, french-style decor and a great lobby! We took the trolley through the Garden District and now are trying to get some rest before dinner and dancing at Mulat's and an evening of jazz at Preservation Hall.
