Across the street from Cafe Du Monde is Jackson Square, the site of the Louisiana Purchase. The St. Louis Cathedral can also be found here where Pope John Paul II worshipped in 1987. The square is surrounded by buildings with balconies and trees hanging with the iconic purple, gold, and green beads.
I'm Michael Smith and this website is simply documentation of our travels over the course of 500 days. We are very lucky. We went bowling ... and some other stuff.
