I finally have a wireless card for the laptop, and can do some blog posting while I'm waiting for the next dump truck to arrive.
So let's start off with the first day I got here. Rebecca , my coworker, showed me around. She's spent a total of about three months here, 2-5 weeks at a time, so was invaluable in helping me get a feel for this city.
We wandered around, walked by the river and saw some ferry boats,
then headed off to a restaurant for some crawfish! The season had just started so I got an entire garbage can lid full! (no, this is not really a garbage can, but it's just about the same size.
I did the inevitable.
