greetings from new orleans, folks. we arrived this morning, dropped our bags at the hotel, and set off to explore and attempt to acclimate after leaving cool, damp boston this morning. the heat is shocking (in such a good way…where is summer, boston?), but not nearly so much as the seeming shortage of people about. hoping it’s the heat paired with the fact that it’s monday afternoon, and not that the french quarter is usually so sparse. we’ll find out tonight. this is a truly beautiful city; we’re all tourist-ing it right up, snapping photos all over the place.
