New Orleans City Life
During our week working in the swamp, we collected about 900 caterpillars! It was a wonderful experience and we learned so much.
Yesterday, we returned to New Orleans and had some time to enjoy a little city life. Here are pictures of some of the places we visited. As you can see, we have been doing a lot of eating! We sampled beignets and chickory coffee at Cafe du Monde.
Later, we went to the Jazz Festival where Ms. Armstrong was brave enough to have an alligator sandwich for lunch. The part she ate was from the tail of the alligator. I tried a little piece and it tasted like fish.
We have been traveling around the city on a streetcar. It's fun and a convenient way to get around. This morning we had some work to do at the lab at Tulane University. We took some time to walk around the campus and had lunch at the student union. Tulane is a private university with about 15,000 students. The campus is beautiful with lots of trees and many old brick buildings. Tonight, we will have a crawfish dinner and say goodbye to all of our new friends. See you all soon!
