The French Quarter this morning

There are loads of things open in the French Quarter today, coffeehouses, bookstores (Crescent City Books on Chartres promised to be open today for one), stores, restaurants and, of course, bars. Many of the staff and owners walk or bike to work so they can get there relatively easily and are happy to offer shelter and companionship, which is much appreciated.
