I've been back for a little over a month now. I printed my essay today and I proof read my Essay introduction. I can't believe that it's been a month already. This trip was amazing and I will never forget the things I saw, the people I met, and the good times we had. The trip was not only amazing, but afterwords my work has been shown in a gallory, library,presented, and soon showing at west photo. I am so proud of my work that came out of the trip. I now am thinking of when I can go back. I miss it. I liked the city and how live it was. I will be going back and helping through my pictures and someday by picking up a hammer as well. So much thanks to all who made it happen, those who supported all of us at our show, and those who made it the best time of my life.

Saturday was our last day in New Orleans. We had so much fun on saturday. We started our day out by going to a swamp tour and saw an alligator eat marsh mellows and we were going to feed it Rich Ryan, but we didn't. We also saw some houses that were damaged and left by Katrina. It was alot of fun. We then went to a tree planting site in the upper 9th ward. Later we went to the lower 9th ward and walked around and Rich made jess cry. The cool thing was we saw this dog house that said FEMA on it. We met a local and later on went to dinner one last time in the french quarter. We had a lot of fun on the trip and it went by so fast. We did so much planning for it and it's already over.
Friday was day 5 of our trip. I went with the Rich Ryan's class in the morning to a cemetery where the voodoo queen's grave was. It was really interesting because the grave yards are so much different from here. We then took the St. Charles street car to the park to have a picnic with everyone. It was 80 degrees and very nice out. After the park me and maria braved the street car by our selves and met some ladies who were art teachers down in New Orleans for a convention. That was really cool. That night some of us girls went shopping in the French Quarter. We laster went to dinner as a group. That day was mostly enjoying the city.
