Anyone Else Not Like New Orleans?

We just got home last night from a 3-week vacation, with New Orleans being our first stop. I enjoyed the hotel we stayed at, Le Richelieu, and we had the Paul McCartney suite (he spent a month there years ago) so that was awesome! The French Quarter is unique and I did enjoy walking around there, during the day. Bourbon Street was , a world all its own. We were there in the early evening and it was already getting rowdy, I can't even imagine what it's like when more people are drunk! And its too bad they don't have public restrooms. The street might smell better if they did.

It didn't help that I got sick on a Greek Salad at the Gazebo Cafe near the Farmer's Market. I don't like the taste of basil, and they sprinkled basil liberally all over the salad. I was hungry, so ate about half. Big mistake. Couldn't even eat dinner that night with the rest of our group at Le Bayou. I tried soup, but couldn't even eat that. Spent a rotten night, then basically caught up on sleep the next day. So, that didn't help, I'm sure.

Enjoyed walking around the Farmer's Market the third day, and I had a fruit cup while DH had a po boy sandwich. I was going to eat a few of his fries but again, they sprinkled basil all over them.

We had breakfast one morning at The Old Coffee Pot, that was nice but the bathroom was strange. Two toilets in the ladies room, but no door separating. And the sink, for both men's and ladies bathrooms, was outside in the hallway.

I enjoyed sitting at the Musical Legends Park, listening to some nice jazz, but our group wanted to move on so I was outvoted on staying. Never did get to listen to any zydeco music.

Lots of chaos and traffic while we were there, but they were getting ready for the Super Bowl the next weekend so it was understandable.

Everything is so expensive though. We had thought about a carriage ride but not at $90 for 30-minutes. We did take one of the bike taxis but even that was $30 for 12 blocks.

Enjoyed seeing it once, but really don't ever care to go back.
