We had reservations for brunch at the Court of Two Sisters Restaurant which I had dined at in 1973 (the only other time I've been here). I didn't realize how far it was to walk from the ferry to the restaurant so my sister had a really hard time getting there
After waddling out of the restaurant, we took a mule drawn carriage tour (the mule farted on Ben) and had beignets from Cafe Du Monde. The nice lady that took us on the tour gave us a ride back to the ferry so my sister wouldn't have to walk.
My sister asked about Voo-Doo and found out it was a religion and like any religion it can be used in a good or bad sense. Black magic is using Voo-Doo in a bad way and is actually called Hoo-Doo. The tour lady said the French Quarter was never flooded during Hurricane Katrina because it's 10 feet above sea level. The rest of the outer area is 10 feet below sea level and that's what flooded.
