The French Quarter

  Yesterday, Mark and I went to the French Quarter, which is pretty much the Times Square of New Orleans.  I haven't seen so many antique stores on the same block since I was in a ritzy mall in Boca Raton, Florida.  The street music is certainly more appealing here than in Times Square however.  The French quarter is exactly like it's named, French.  It's a remnant of the influence that the French had over the city.  The street signs are on the sides of buildings on the corners, very similar to European cities.  Today was a fun packed day, and I should post about it soon, we left the city limits and saw something completely new.
