Anywhere from traditional and contemporary jazz to blues or New Orleans Funk. This is one of Louisiana's largest and free music festivals. |

11: Dear Journal, I arrived in New Orleans today. It was just a short five hour drive down from Shreveport. This is a magnificent city. I'm staying at the Hotel St. Marie, which is in the French Quarter. I can't wait till tomorrow when I start site seeing. But for now I must rest to be ready for whatever the day will bring me tomorrow. | | journal entry # 1

12: Dear Journal, I started to walk around the French Quarter today. When out of nowhere it started to rain. So I went into a shop called the Blue Alligator. I met a very nice lady there, her name is Tess. We learned that we are staying in the same hotel. So we decided to catch each other tomorrow and go horseback riding. Well, guess I better find my way back to the hotel and dry off. | | journal entry #2

13: | Dear Journal, Today Tess and I went horseback riding at Equest Stables. Only 15 minutes from downtown New Orleans. Tess rode Voodoo and I rode Craw. Eddie, the owner of the horse, told me that he would have named him Crawfish but seeing as though craw is a horse, that wasn't going to work. So Eddie named him Craw. We had a lot of fun and are planning on going fishing tomorrow. | journal entry #3

14: Dear Journal, Today Tess wasn't feeling well so I went fishing on my own. I don't remember the name of the fishing company. It was a very nice family who taught me everything that I needed to know about fishing. I even caught a few fish. I'm so glad that I have another week to do more things! | | journal entry #4

15: compare and contrast | New Orleans is known for good jazz music just as Kansas City is. While New Orleans has good cajun food and seafood, Kansas City is has good bar-b-que. New Orleans has a grid type layout, however, Kansas City is kind of randomly laid out. New Orleans is crazy for football, whereas Kansas City loves basketball. Kansas City has snow almost every year inspite of New Orleans who rarely has snow. |

16: This journey has led me to realize that life can be full of adventures. Those adventures can be exciting or sad. But you can always make a friend or two out of it. | | cause and effect

17: I hope you have learned something new about New Orleans that you didn't know before. | conclusion | | "I travel to learn." -Mark Twain
