I am writing on the 2nd deck of the Steamboat Nachez in New Orleans, LA. Wow, 6 days on the road and I still can’t believe this is really happening. We’re in New Orleans!

We were able to walk to the French Quarter from our hotel, have lunch/dinner on Bourbon Street (and yes, I had Bourbon, and Mint Julep), walk down Bourbon and Tolouse Street and now I’m riding a Steamboat on the Mississippi River.

OH! MY! GODS! I cannot believe this is happening, to thank about the apartment situation, my parents said it best, money is just money. You can always earn more.

And I’d rather be in debt for doing something amazing than something ridiculous like shopping.

Oh, look, my Cajun Bloody Mary is here, (a New Orleans specialty)… to be continued.

t’s funny, we're in New Orleans and all we seem to do is look at pretty things, eat, and drink. Because everywhere you go has either a signature dish or a signature drink. New Orleans is definitely all about the consumption. History too, but food and drink most definitely.
