This weekend, my siblings and I decided to head down to Nawlins for the weekend to celebrate my sister’s birthday and my recent assistantship. After literally spending all day at school on Friday, when Southern University doesn’t even have class, I was so beat that I really didn’t have the energy to even want to go. But, I pushed my lethargy aside, underpacked a bag, and headed out. We arrived in New Orleans around 10 PM, which was way past my bedtime and I just could NOT go out that night so I stayed behind and went to sleep.
The next morning, of course I was the first to wake up so I headed down to get some breakfast. *sigh* I wish I could wake up every morning with a plethora of breakfast foods to choose from. But, I digress. We headed out to walk around the city.
Along the Riverwalk
Preparing for the Superbowl – Jackson Square
Saint Louis Cathedral – Jackson Square
Calypso Tumblers – Jackson Square
Calypso Dancers – Jackson Square
My phone died so I couldn’t get more pictures, but after being called weird, strange, and every other variation for having the desire to want to capture New Orleans and its marvels, I didn’t even want to take anymore pictures. Nevertheless, I enjoyed myself, but I’d definitely try not to pack in 30 minutes.
Are you coming to New Orleans for the Superbowl? Mardi Gras?
I’ll be back for both.
Laissez les bons temps rouler!”
