The French Marketplace

With such a long day yesterday and another road trip tomorrow to Mississippi, today we stay local and started our morning with a reflection engaging the idea of this immersion program being less about experiences and more about ENCOUNTERS. We then set off for a breakfast treat of beignets at the world famous Café du Monde and then some time in the French Marketplace before our 11am tour at the Presbytere to learn about hurricane Katrina and the New Orleans culture of Mardi Gras. We’ll visit the slave markers the city has set up to educate visitors to the reality slavery with New Orleans having the largest slave trading markets. The city has launched an app that chronicles this foundational experience– inviting moments of encounter.
