Daniel and I skirted the impending Seattle autumn for 5 days by heading to New Orleans, where it is still hot, humid and air conditioning is required.
Since it was meant to be a “relaxing” vacation, we didn’t make any plans. We didn’t tell anyone we knew there we were coming. We booked a room in a guest house and just wandered around for 5 days.
We did go to City Park and play mini golf, since I can’t find any in Seattle. (wtf seattle?) I beat Daniel by one par.
And we went to the Aquarium of the Americans, which was partially sponsored by BP and Shell and talked about how offshore oil rigs are great because they create coral-like environments for fish and other species. Sure, guys.
We also went to a lot of bars and saw a lot of bachelorette parties. New Orleans is kind of the Vegas of the South and everyone drinks High Life.
