2 hour stop, enough time to walk to French Quarter where we saw University and old church.
Trip so far has been wonderful, woke up and worked out a little in tiny place behind the bar in observation car, went to breakfast of hot oatmeal, read, napped, played cards, looked out the window a lot, lunch was crab benedict, afternoon chocolate, cheese and wine; halibut for dinner. Tomorrow more of the same.
Thinking back about departure from Vancouver, we had great experience with train employee of 38 years who showed us pictures of old trains and told us about many train details, plus recommended great Italian restaurant.
So glad to have Kindle with piles of books to read.
Showered on traintoday too, great hot shower!
