Where I stayed
Welcome to New Orleans!!! Arrived here this afternoon and went straight to Honey Island where we got a boat that toured the swamp..... lots of alligators that were fed.... wait for it.... hot dogs and marshmallow's!! To be that close was scary stuff but a must see!!!
Have now arrived at the HOTEL!!!!! No camping!!! It has a double bed and a bathroom!!!! Off to explore tonight although its not a particularly a safe city.... there has been many murders and kidnaps... have just had a quick walk around..... has anyone been to New Orleans? It is so very strange and not what I expected....
Just had pizza and am going to shower for at least an hour before exploring further...
Well I survived to continue the tale..... hmmmmm Bourbon Street, the most famous street in New Orleans, and from what I can tell famous for two things.... first drink.... the "grenade", this is supposed to be the strongest alcoholic drink and to be honest it tastes of Lilt.... so not impressed, lol and secondly the streets are like a busy Oxford Street, accept everyone is drunk... above the bars are balcony's that guys and girls throw down coloured beads if you show them your boobs!!!! Yes I got beads but only for smiling sweetly.....
So first impression not great but I'll have a wander tomorrow and see it in the daylight....
