Lori Mould's everyday life!

GCC Alternative Spring Break 2011 March 16, 2011


Wow…it seems like forever since my last post but I can assure you that we have been busy! We made great time coming to NOLA and got here on Saturday with enough time to head down to the French Quarter to partake in a carriage ride, Cafe Du Monde, and a stroll down Bourbon Street.

Sunday was went to the French Market for some shopping, Snowballs (Yummy!!), lunch at Margaritaville (gator, conch, and fried green tomatoes) was amazing…The weather has been delightful since we came into town!!

Monday was a great day of working on Ms. Lynette’s home, a trip to Frenchmen Street.  We went to Snug Harbor to enjoy the music of Charmaine Neville and Friends Band and then some dancing at La Maison!! What a fabulous day with the proper mix of work and experiencing the culture of this beautiful city!!

Tuesday was spend enjoying the great company of Ms. Lynette and friends, working outside while enjoying the sunshine, being treated to some good ole red beans and rice….man, life is good!!

Today we went to Delgado Community College City Campus to talk with the students in Ms. Raymonda Dennis’ class regarding what it means and has meant to us to come down to Louisiana and New Orleans to experience service learning first hand. Not to mention, what it brought to our lives immersing ourselves into the culture, experiencing the people, and eating some wonderful food. We showed the documentary “Resilient and Everchanging: Louisiana’s Struggle to Rebound!”  The students were very interactive and made lots of great points and offered some very wonderful information about people that we can talk to so that I can glean some stories and information from them about the issues facing this region right now!! Tonight we are having a gathering to show the documentary and share a meal with some more of the wonderful people that I have had the privilege  if getting to know!!

I will keep you posted!!!
