Today's pics are New Orleans centered.
My favorite mode of transportation in New Orleans is the streetcar. We had the streetcar line running right behind our house.
I can remember when I first moved there, the sound of the streetcar running at night drove me CRAZY.
Then, I got used to it.
So much so, that when I moved out to the country and tried to sleep in the stillness that you can only get from not being within city limits, I discovered I desperately missed the sound of the streetcar.
Now, of course, I'm used to the stillness and love it.
But what I wouldn't give to hear that streetcar late in the night once more.
Here's a pic of the streetcar stop sign. You find one of these and just stand and wait til the next one comes along.
Here's two of them meeting at Calliope (pronounced Cal-e-o-pee) and St. Charles under I-10.
Here's the beginning of the streetcar line. I took this picture at the cross over on the neutral ground that took me down Sycamore Street. One block from where I used to live. This is where I used to catch the streetcar to take me downtown so I could drink all I want and not drive! It was so worth that $1.25 each way just for that reason alone.
Where is a homeowners association when you need one, eh?
