Our final night we went to the candlelight lounge to hear the treme brass band. they play there every weds night. a rare musical experience. red beans and rice and traditional new orleans brass band music. met and hung with lionel babtista who turns 80 today. happy birthday lionel! wish we could be there for your party. (and schmengy, i thought of you–you would have been in heaven) i have more nawlins pics that i will slowly drip out. that’s it for now.
