    New Orleans - Airport

    August 2, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

    Nach 4 Nächten LA ging es mit Delta nach New Orleans. Auf dem Flug in der 737 gab es volles Entertainment. Damit hatten wir gar nicht gerechnet und waren hocherfreut.

    In New Orleans angekommen wurden wir mit einem kleinen Golfcaddy zu unserer Autovermietung gebracht. Dort haben wir ein Auto Upgrade bekommen und fahren jetzt zum Glück mit Tempomat durch die Gegend.

    Unsere Fahrt ging direkt nach Mobile, Alabama, bzw. Spanish Fort. Wir fuhren damit von Louisiana, durch Mississippi nach Alabama. Begrüßt wird man hier an der Staatsgrenze nach Alabama mit "Welcome to Sweet Home Alabama". Ohrwurm des Songs ist damit wohl immer garantiert. Hier besuchen wir David's Arbeitskollegen David und seine Tochter Julia. Namenstechnisch sind wir uns also schon mal einig.

    Hurricane Alley ...

    October 25, 2015 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 22 °C

    Having weathered hurricane Joaquin with a modicum of grace, we were certain we had left inclimate weather behind. We SAW hurricane Patricia headed toward Mexico, but hurricanes NEVER make it far across land. Right? By the time it hit here last night, it had been downgraded to a tropical depression, but it didn't seem depressed at ALL. It seemed QUITE active and purpose driven. We have had 4-1/3 inches of rain fall here since about 2:00 a.m. and it's still going strong.

    We don't mind, as we've been going strong without stopping for about the last 4 weeks. We have cozied into our little geezer-mobile with tea and snacks. We went out for coffee, groceries and a visit to a very nearby YMCA. We are back having happy hour, enjoying the break.

    But ok ... if we get to New Mexico and are met by ANOTHER hurricane, we are going to have to start asking some serious questions of a smore or less cosmic nature. I'm just sayin' ...

    Cafe Du Monde

    October 25, 2015 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    Our one disappointment in our activities yesterday was that the famous Cafe du Monde was plagued by lines around the corner. Heather wanted to share the experience of their signature beignets and chicory cafe au lait with Gordon, but it seemed a fools errand with the weather picking up.

    This morning during our browse fest, Heather found out that Cafe du Monde actually has some satellite cafes around town ... one very close to us! No crowds. Soft jazz playing. And the same melt-in-your-mouth powdered-sugar-drowned beignets warm from the fat accompanied by strong cafe au lait steeped with the bitter chicory root. Heaven.
