As much fun as it was to see the different architecture and eclectic assortment of shops, perhaps the best part was actually watching all of the different people. We never knew what we'd find.
Right after I snapped her picture, she looked right at me and then began walking straight at me.
Her: I went in for communion, and when it was my turn, the priest said "Not for you today" (she says this as if she were impersonating Gollum, while recoiling her body around the forbidden -and imagined- chalice)
Her: It must be the way I am dressed. He was totally judging me. And I didn't even take the balloon in with me (Refer to the phallic balloon above. Point taken.) How did he know I wasn't a Messenger or something?
Me: Umm... Well, I think you have to be baptized in the Catholic church to take Communion.
Her: I am. From when I was a baby. I told him and all he said was "Not for you today" (assumes Gollum impression again).
Me: Geez. I'm really sorry.
And then she walked away. At least she wasn't mad that I took her picture...
Just in front of the cathedral is Jackson square. And bananas grow there, too.
It seemed that everyone else made the obligatory Cafe du Monde stop at the same time as us. It was packed. While waiting in line, this dragonfly landed on the lady in front of me. It stayed there for a few minutes. She never noticed.
