Thursday


I finally got to sleep in until 8am! I waited for Antonio to get back from taking pictures in the French Quarter, then we took the ferry over to Algiers.  We were over there to take pictures of some guys house, i don't remember his name.  We walked for at least 45 minutes down the same road, took a right, went for about three blocks and decided we should turn around.  It was kind of sketchy.  Once we got back from Algiers I wanted to go to another Habitat site so a few of us got in the van ready to go.  We went to a camera shop to pick up some film, then realized by the time we got to the site they would be cleaning up.  We decided to take a drive down Tchoupilopolous street, or whatever it is called. We had about 400 names for it.  It lead us to Audoban Park.  I would say we were there for about an hour, and we saw an alligator!  Once we got back our class was editing pictures in the hotel lobby.  Almost everyone went to dinner together to get pizza, then followed that up with a show at the House of Blues.  I didn't make it that far into the concert until I had to leave to sleep.  I didn't take any pictures for my essay this day but here is the alligator!

THe story about this gator is that the pond in Audubon Park is a notorious site for the release of those ill-thought-out gifts to children..SO it's not unusual for a gator to be in the pond. But they don't usually evade the gator catchers until they are 4' in length!
