Well, I’m not a party guy unfortunately. At least not anymore. I mean, I like parties. I like dancing and music so much. I just can’t drink as hell. My head would literally explode if I drunk more than just a couple of lager beers.

Why am I telling you this? You should see what regularly happens in the French Quarter in New Orleans. The crucial point of the quarter, Bourbon Street, is basically a big open party. And the craziest one.

But even though I don’t particularly enjoy this kind of atmosphere, I have to say it’s something that has to be seen. Besides, the best part of all this is the music. Hundreds of places with live music at every hour.

Other than that, as for my feelings regarding NOLA, I really have to say I found a completely different city from what I expected it to be, the one I had pictured in my mind. And that picture was basically the French Quarter as I saw it in some movies.

Instead I found more than just that. A very big and I’d say classic in some aspects, American City. Numerous neighborhoods, some of them really nice, freeways all over the place, stores and parks.

It’s true, like I’ve heard so many times, that’s very European in some aspects, but I found this statement true only in regard to the French Quarter. Which is a little part of the city itself.

All in all, I really liked it, and I’m glad I finally got to see one of the most particular American cities. I’ll leave you at some of the pictures I took, and you’ll probably hear from me, for the last part of my road trip, in about a week.
