Greetings from New Orleans, and Berklee’s 5th Annual Gracenotes trip with Habitat for Humanity! We just finished our first day onsite at 1839 Allen Street in the 7th Ward, where we’ll be spending our next 5 days.

Day two is winding down, but surprisingly, my mind is still going at a frantic pace. With no Dunkin Donuts since early Monday morning, I’m puzzled at the amount of energy I still have. The vibrancy of New Orleans and excitement our team definitely helps.
We traveled to our worksite today, only to be redirected back to the 9th Ward where the team was last year. Upon arrival, we quickly went over all the safety guidelines and got right to work. I had mixed expectations on the level of construction skill our team would have, but after just a few minutes, everything seemed to fall into place. Michael and I were quick to lend our advice on hammering nails and now Roya, Sally and Laurie can hammer like there’s no tomorrow.
