I'm in New Orleans Now

Band Outside Jackson Square

I arrived in New Orleans for the American Library Association Annual Conference today and have already wandered the Warehouse District and French Quarter. Click on the trombone to get to my Flickr photos from those areas. I wrote more to explain the photos than I usually do.

I learned firsthand that there is a shortage of workers in the area, and employers are hiring who they can. Our Airport Shuttle driver was just hired and did not know his way around the city. It was pretty funny, as a load of librarians with maps helped him find the hotels.

Whatever, I am here and will start attending meetings Saturday.
