|The Chapel on campus.|
Ray and I drove to New Orleans in September to attend a workshop and for him to do a little Spurgeon research. We stayed on the campus of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. When we got married over twenty-eight years ago we left from our wedding to go to our honeymoon, then straight to seminary. We lived there for a little over a year before we got back to Georgia as fast as we could. We were reminiscing a lot and wishing we had enjoyed certain things about the city more while we were there.
One of the things that we would like to have done more is eat out. We lived on my part time salary as a minimum wage clerk at the bookstore. Our grocery and gas budget back then was $35.00 per week and that included eating out!
Muffalatas at Cafe' Maspero was one place where we ate more than once. It is still just as yummy!
We didn't find things that different than the last time we were there together, twenty-five years ago. St. Peter's Square is still beautifully crazy and diverse. The darkness of the French Quarter is even more over-whelming to me. Having been flooded after Katrina, I'm sure those who know the city would think it is completely changed from twenty-eight years ago. But memories seem to cloud with time.
