Couple days off

Spending a couple needed days off in NOLA with my aunt Patience who I haven’t seen in years. She lives in a cool shotgun style apartment in uptown NOLA and her fold out bed sure beats the bunk I have been sleeping in. She has been gracious enough to drive me around a bit today so I could do some much needed shopping. Some socks and running shoes as well as restocking my toiletries kit. In addition I picked up a wireless keyboard for my Ipad to make typing these posts a lot easier, as well as a Nikon Coolpix S9100 digital camera to help seriously upgrade the quality of the photos I take. It was a hard choice between this and a Nikon L120 that featured a little more zoom, but this model was A.) on sale for less, B.) Features higher megapixels and 1080p hd video over 720p. Fortunately apple also makes an adaptor for the Ipad that allows me to either hook up the camera or insert the SD card and upload my photos straight to here. Looks the the laptop is now offically just for data storage.
I also visited the National WWII museum today here in NOLA and have to say it was pretty cool, its designed to be walked straight through one way, and has a lot of photographs and audio/visual displays. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the area and doing the tourist thing.
