We left from the port of New Orleans, so we went down a day early to do some sight seeing before our trip. We got to see Grandpa & Grandma a whole day sooner than we planned and we also got to meet a Glouner cousin who owns a restaurant in a nearby city. It was so neat to see fellow Glouners... there really aren't that many of us. Although we'd never met, there was that immediate feeling of kinship as they each noticed similar physical features and mannerism in one another. It was such a special day. PS. New Orleans is such a dirty city. I love its character and its rod iron balconys, but the entire city stinks. We stayed in a super nice hotel. Our room was probably bigger than our first apartment, but we walked outside of the super gauty lobby and skirted past the bellhop to see puke splattered all over the sidewalk. Yep. It's that gross.
