Can you believe that?

See that? Apparently, by the expression on their face, everybody did. I didn't. Wish I could tell you what it was that they are smiling about. Just shows that the horse and buggy tour with a good tour guide gives you a real feel for the city and the "rest of the story."

These buggy tours are real popular in the French Quarter, but I have been seeing more and more of them around town. A few weeks back there must have been something big going on at a hotel across from the Convention Center, because there were about 20 of these buggies lined up waiting.

By the way if you missed the comments on yesterday's post you have to see this -- AND MAKE SURE YOUR CLICK THE LINK TO THE PHOTO. It made me laugh and smile for a half hour.

I'm sure it's no coincidence that King Falstaff is oriented so that he is toasting the nearby Dixie Brewery on Tulane Avenue. You can see it in this photo

Oh i remember those buggies. I saw them in New Orleans when I was there two years ago. I was surprised to see so many "signs" of the past.

i do the buggy tours more often than not....only some times costs are so prohibitive......we enjoyed our guide's stories in Mackinac Island but Savannah was a disappointment!

It's good to see more of these tours - means tourism is back. I've never done those buggy tours. Maybe I will next time.

That comment cracked me up too.

I'm glad to see the tourists back and bringing income to the people. Great candid shot.

Some folks will be quite ready for the post-oil age! Tomorrow is 'walk to work day'I believe,and maybe its a global thing. Nothing new for horses!
