Big Easy: Five Days in New Orleans – the Land of Satchmo & the French Quarter

Walk the Old Quarter. We listened to a great jazz group at the north end of Jackson Square. Enjoy a classic creole fish chowder at the Red Fish at the corner of Bourbon and Canal. Have fine crab soup and baked oysters at the Annunciation, watch the films of Hurricane Katrina at the Presbyère, which fronts Jackson Square, and visit the World War II museum and take the tours “Road to Tokyo” and “Road to Berlin” and have a malted in the canteen afterwards.
