03.2007: week 3

I'll follow up last week's post with another from New Orleans. After working with the trustees Thursday morning, we spent the afternoon and evening in the city. It's about an hour drive from Port Sulphur into the city. On the way in, we stopped in the now infamous Ninth Ward. Two of the guys had worked there last year and wanted to see the progress. Most of the homes have been completely torn down and carried away, leaving behind front steps and foundations. The Army Corps of Engineers has erected a new floodwall along the Intracoastal Waterway. We got out and walked around the neighborhood a bit, and Josh (left) and Bryan took in all that had changed.
