New Orleans Levee

New Orleans Levee


I was there for Mardi Gras, and many people camped out along the levee here. The boat in the distance was for people who could afford to take a luxury liner to New Orleans for four days, they slept on the boat. One night it fell below freezing, and the best churches opened their doors for sleeping, so I then slept in the cathedral near Plaza de Armas. This levee at the Governor Nicholls Street Wharf protects the French Quarter from flooding

's funny thing about church, in Britain [which after all was the proto of which the U.S.A. is a better model] all our institutions came 1st from the church shaming the govts to doing something for people. Even the Labour movement comes out of methodism. :)
