New Orleans Ramblin’s
This trip really couldn’t be going any better. I’m serious. Everything has really just fallen into place. We have a ton of money left which we are going to apply to next year. Christians and atheists are creating an odd sort of community that’s just lovely to see. I have been on a ton of service project trips and I have never seen such a wildly diverse group of people gel like this. It’s truly awesome to see.
Make sure you check out Ashley’s videos.
If you get to New Orleans I, you have to take a Ghost History tour. Make sure you go on the tour that will tell you more history than ghost. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love the Ghost, but I love the history more. My favorite story? The Singing rain. One of the best stories I have heard.
People really care about this city. I saw this in an interesting community meeting. The room was full to decided the issue of a Community center. How often do community meetings fill a large cafeteria in other parts of the country, especially over a community center?
Our team has really kicked butt this week. They have demo’d two houses, moved a ton of dirt and tutored kids.
Best argument of the trip? What constitutes a d-bag and a bro? Do they overlap? Are their distinctives to both? Similarities?
If you go to New Orleans II: Go see the Preservation Hall jazz band. If anything, just to see every generation together listening to amazing music.
Bourbon Street: Loud, smells like piss and puke. If you just go there and say you have seen New Orleans, you haven’t.
Kevin Brown, director of the Trinity, our host, won the best US Citizen award. Looking forward to having coffee with him tomorrow.
Coming soon to Columbus, Ohio…. a joint/Christian atheist conference.
If you get to New Orleans III: Muffaletta. Eat them. Gator. Eat them. nom. nom. nom.
Which came first? Who Dat? or Who dey? Let the war commence….
