Today Alicia has taken us down to the lower 9th Ward. 

A year and a half later there's still not much life.  Visiting the area for the first time, the devastation hit me as hard as the news of the storm as it happened.  Many lots are empty, others try to hang on to the roots of the walls as the rest of the buildings are collapsing upon them.  Grass and weed has overgrown most everything along with the connecting walkways.  Many street signs are hand written planks, but most of them are still missing, although new traffic lights have been installed on a couple of corners for the drive through traffic.

Yet, from the decay and rubbish comes art.
Will life imitate its colors in the lower 9th Ward?
