Journal Entry:
In the morning I went to the French quarter and walked around. I had breakfast (cafe au lait and beinots) at Cafe du Monde, I listen to blues and Jazz, and had a margarita at "Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville". After that I came back to do laundry at Igor's laundry / pool hall / bar. It was a very relaxing afternoon, doing laundry drinking beer and reading.

At night I went out with a group, Michael and Sara from Australia, Becky from England, and Adriana from Brazil. We started at Igor's, played pool and drank beers for a couple hours, then it was off to Bourbon Street. We did the daiquiris in "to go" cups, Hurricanes, and "Hand Grenades" (this last one was a big mistake. Then it was back to Igor's for a late cheese burger and more pool. Got back to the hostel at about 6:30am. While we were in this one bar I ran into Shawn Stanley, a novice rower from UCSD about 7 years ago. He recognized me, I knew all those parties at 706 Tangiers were for something. Anyway, now I have a place to stay in St Louis.
