About Madame Pontalba being shot in the chest 4 times by her father in law and surviving; that the clinic by Bourban street does the most liver transplants in the US and the age expectancy of residents around Bourbon street is 65 - akin to Bangladesh! He shhowed us shot houses (4 rooms deep all attached to each other), Brad Pitt and Angela Jolies house and the oldest bar in the USA. And the church where the French nuns wrote to President Jefferson to ensure they would be well looked after  when the US was buying Louisiana.
