We did stop at the international house of Pancakes for lunch. We arrived at 7pm and checked into our hotel Chateau Depres in the French Quarter on New Orleans. I visited Harrahs casino for a couple of hours and won $248.80. We then headed into the french quarter and walked along Bourbon Street. Now Bourbon is famous as is New Orleans for being given beads in exchange for flashing body parts. We collected many beads necklaces but they were being thrown to the crowds for balcony’s above the street.
