London things part one:

Sometimes you're just walking along and you see pretty things along the way:

The Thames

Shawna is finally here and with her arrival comes a break from my essay writing! I took her on a boat ride along The Thames to see a bit of London. We went with my favorite people I have met since here; Peggy, Loll, and Theiry. We were also joined by two new friends - Peg is the most social person in London and always has new visitors.

A long time ago...

I found some OLD pictures from when I went to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 

Rebuilding and gutting homes in the 9th ward.

I remember the city feeling dead. You could walk into any home and look around. Neighborhood after neighborhood would be abandoned for miles. 

We lived in a tent city in an abandoned church.

This organization would provide food for the surrounding neighborhoods when there was nothing else open in the area.
