Honey Island Swamp tour

Well, it didn't start out that great, couldn't get on the flight yesterday, so I took the one reaaaaal early this morning, got into New Orleans and it was raining... Amsterdam style raining I mean.  So after getting my luggage and getting into the taxi, where I soon found myself in gritlock traffic, I really started to wonder why it was that I traveled half way around the world for a mini Netherlands style day.... Anyway, the cabdriver was real friendly and gave me a lot of advice and after half an hour I found myself in the French quarter outside my hotel. Checked in and hauled my luggage up the small cast-iron stairs. Opened my door and found my room to be right out of interview with a vampire. I loved it. (see pic) So I unpacked and went downstairs to ask the receptionist to get me on the first available Bayou tour.

I read about the Honey Island Swamp tour when I did my research online, so I was happy to get on that boat. I got picked up by the taxicab, which I shared with 6 other people. Among them a real nice couple from Boston. We drove to the little house at the end of the swamp and the rest you can read below in my review....
