Could you be more surprised on a Gray Line tour?
It seemed like an ordinary day in New Orleans, but no so for visitors who took the Gray Line Katrina Tour recently.
While our bus was stopped alongside Fats Dominos’ house, Fats pulled up to his house and offered to meet the group on the bus.
The driver pulled the bus around the corner, stopped and everyone got off the bus and took pictures with Fats.
He even added tales telling everyone that our driver used to “play piano with him!”
On this day it wasn't "Walking to New Orleans" but taking a Gray Line Tour there.
A few notes on this New Orleans musical legend....
