Today our group had a busy day. We had a bayou tour and got the change to explore the French Quarter, which included a Hurricane Katrina exhibit. We also had the chance to see the levees and the Lower Ninth Ward. The things we had seen today made our reflections not only emotional, but enlightening. For me, having been here before some of the sights we visited left me with little to say, but hearing everyone else’s experiences gave me the chance to see these in a new way. I got a new perspective on the sites that have unfortunately become so familiar today. I’m looking forward to hearing everyone’s reflections tomorrow after our first day of building!
