New Orleans Hospitality

Feb. 26th, 2012
I have already fallen in love with New Orleans. The feeling of community and love in this area is immense. The hospitality expressed by locals is absolutely unmatched by any place I have visited. I am inspired by how proud these people are of their city. I am intrigued by the vibrant colors I see everywhere I turn from the Mardi Gras beads hanging off trees, houses, and banisters to the color of the buildings themselves. The same cheerfulness is found in each person I have had the pleasure to meet so far. From the beyond patient cashier at Walmart who waited about a half hour with us to help us check out our 4 carts of groceries, to John Wilkes Booth who showed us a part of the city that may not always be remembered by all who visit, to the members of the church we visited. I have felt a part of this community from the moment I stepped off the plane and I only imagine that feeling will get stronger with each passing day.   Morgan
