So, last night we bumped into Brad Pitt while eating dinner. He was extremely kind and offered to take us all out for coffee and beignets at Cafe Du Monde. Just kidding y'all...it did make you read the post didn't it?
Today was our second work day. We felt like the day went better. We have several students who are interested in putting in base boards and painting for faculty for free. I'm full of jokes today! We did accomplish a lot, and we should be able to begin painting interior walls tomorrow.
Our site leader recommended a great BBQ restaurant for us. We ate at "The Joint" on Poland. We had brisket, ribs, pulled pork, macaroni and cheese, baked beans and more. We then drove deeper into the 9th Ward to see what progress has been made in that area since Hurricane Katrina. We found Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's "Make it Right Project". Please see our videos below.
We are off in search of souvenirs and more beignets!
