WIT Travel in New Orleans- Day 3

- Christina

From March 23-30 I traveled with a group called WIT Travel to New Orleans. Two other high schoolers and me planned the trip with the goal of promoting the idea of teenagers everywhere making volunteering part of their travels. Below is my blog from day 3, more will be posted over the course of the week. 

Today was lived in reverse: I woke up tired but gained more energy as our adventures went on. We started off early by going to work weeding the entrance of the Rethinkers garden. It was cold outside, but the sky was a crisp blue, and we all had a great time laughing, singing, and playing tug-of-war with the weeds. Just because we made the experience fun, though, doesn’t mean that we didn’t work hard. By the time we left, a green, overgrown area transformed into a clean, landscaped tract. I did not leave Rethinkers feeling like I had just done hours of manual labor- I left it feeling like I had just spent a fun morning outside with friends.
A hearty lunch at Cochon Butcher left me in food-coma mode, but I did not succumb. Ms. H and I went on another run through the French Quarter, this time in the afternoon. I’m always amazed by the sights and sounds of the neighborhood, such as a live jazz band that played on the sidewalk like it was their back porch.
By happy accident, we stumbled upon the aptly named Serendipity. It was a really neat restaurant, and I loved every single dish I tried. The chef, Chris Debarr, came to visit our table and talk to us about his restaurant and his life. He was an energetic and entertaining man, and he said very interesting things about living life with passion. His blessing of serendipity followed us, as afterwards we discovered an amazing dessert “boutique” called Sucré. Even though we had already eaten dessert, we knew this was an experience that could not be missed. The four of us finished the night sitting around a table enjoying massive cups of heavenly gelato. It was a great end to a day that just kept getting better.
