Last Day!

Yesterday after our fourth day of work we all boarded the Steamboat Natchez dinner cruise along the Mississippi River. They had a Dixie Jazz Band that I shot some footage of.

After that Jason, Brian and I went to Harrah's for some gambling. I played my first table and lost about $15 in ten seconds. I moved on to slots and won $70! After that we retreated to the hotel and I went to bed. The next morning the inevitable happened....I OVERSLEPT! Luckily I woke up on my own at 7:12am, we leave the hotel at 7:15. So I had no shower, no coffee and had to eat my bagel in the taxi. Rough start but so far another great day.

Well it's hard to believe but today was my last day on the work site. I had an absolute amazing time down here. My group and the other cross country volunteers were beyond a pleasure to work with. I gotta say my only complaint working wasn't the heat, it wasn't the workload, it was the desire to do more. Some projects required a job to be done first before we could get our hands in. Other times we were overstaffed and had people with nothing to do at times. I guess when it comes to volunteer work this is not so bad of a problem to have. We accomplished so much yet there is so much left.

After our last day on the work site I went out with one of my co-workers Rob and Jim, the New Orleans video director. Turns out he shot footage for the Imax movie we all checked out in Boston. He had me call the owner of this famous bar that was founded in 1856 called Tujagues and make reservations for our group. As Jim would say "food is a religion here." After that we plan on checking out some jazz at "Ray's Boom Boom Room." Tonight I think we all have some celebrating to do.

I will leave you all with my last set of pictures here and a good bye message I filmed at the work site this afternoon. I will never forget this experience. I'm coming home with a lifetime full of memories. Thanks for sharing them with me.
