Extremes in New Orleans


{The Lower Ninth Ward, the area that was hit the hardest by Hurricane Katrina. The top photo shows the red markings made by rescuers searching the area for people and animals in the aftermath of the storm. The bottom photo shows homes in the Lower Ninth Ward that have been rebuilt for local musicians by Habitat for Humanity.}
{The Garden District. It was hard to take photos from the bus at twilight but the homes, untouched by the hurricane for the most part, were gorgeous. After I took the top photo the tour guide told us that Sandra Bullock lives there.}

Ian and I decided to take a tour of New Orleans to see some parts of the city we might not have otherwise, like the Lower Ninth Ward and the Garden District.
