Portia's Prayertime

Today our intrepid traveler did the casual Sunday. After Church, they went on a little recreational trip:

Well, this morning, we had church (they welcomed us and the Michigan volunteers), then one of the congregants made lunch for us...gumbo...then we took off to New Orleans

Yeah, the Big Easy. The envy is palpable.

Wow, Jackson Square is beautiful. The French Quarter is gorgeous and decadent.

Again, with the envy.

There's still the street performers, even now. And Mardi Gras will carry on, just as normal. The rest of the city is silent, but Bourbon Street still lives, if only with a muted party.

Tomorrow they start again, rebuilding what little they can. Her journey ends on Thursday, but her memories will carry on for years.
